Possible bug

Hello all,

I've just made a fresh install of 14.0.1 on an OpenSUSE 13.2 on a Thinkpad 
X220 Tablet. Evrything went smooth, but I've got a small problem:

If I set "Show device icons" in "configure Desktop -Device icons" and choose 
to show "Mounted Hard Disk Volume", I can see my mounted USB key - but I also 
see my mounted Hard Disk partitions.

If I deselect "Mounted Hard Disk Volume" they all disappear, including the USB 
key. The dialog to mount the key when inserted does appear and the key does 
mount, but as I can't see it on the desktop it makes it more complicated to 
unmount (and I may forget).

Show Mounted Removable Medium does nothing.

Everything does work correctly on OpenSUSE 13.1 and TDE 14.0.0 on my main 

Now the question is:

TDE bug?
Bug in the OpenSUSE version of 14.0.1?
Local problem (maybe the graphic driver?)?

Apart from that, this notebook is awsome: I can work as usual with TDE and my 
favourite trackpoint, and those application that can use / require a 
touchscreen work like a charm with the Wacom digitizer.

It's more heavy than a Tablet, but it comforts me in thinking Tablets are 
useless to people who _work_ with a computer, it's only foe surfing (and 
maybe gaming).

Ah, and I first tried "Tumbleweed" with KDE Plasma 5 on it - keep away! They 
are back to good old Windows Vista time, with notifications poping up 
everywhere all the time. Gnome 3 does a good job as a Tablet Interface and it 
includes a Wacom calibrating tool, but with a "Convertible" and it's Thinpad 
Keyboard It's TDE again obviously.
