The problem seems to be that the DVD isn't getting mounted before VLC tries
to play it.  When I put in a DVD and the window pops up, if I first
double-click on the DVD's icon on the desktop to mount it and open it in
Konqueror, then go back to the window and select 'Open in VLC', then VLC
opens and plays it without the above error.

So the question becomes, (a) how do I make it (KIOExec?) mount the DVD
before VLC tries to play it?  And shouldn't it already do it right, like
XFCE does?

By the way, this is on Debian Wheezy.
