I've had that off and on. If I "dd" an install CD/DVD image to a thumb
drive, then it will do exactly that, open both the device and the

Even if I repartition/reformat the thumb drive, it would continue to do so.

I found the tool "wipefs" would remove the extra bits that fdisk and
mkfs were missing, and then only the formatted partition would show

At the same time, my USB disks will many times not be recognized as
"removable" or whatever it is in TDE that causes them to show up as an
icon on the desktop, but they're still mounted with a Konqueror
instance opening up to display the contents. I then use the command
line to "umount /dev/sdf1" when I'm done.

All that above has been on Debian Jessie, the previous Stable.

However, I just did a clean install of TDE on the latest Debian,
Stretch, and now I'm getting the same symptoms as you are. Two desktop
icons, two Konqueror windows open, one of which has the error.

I'm sure systemd is at fault somehow.
