All of a sudden in 11.10 I am no longer even though administrator able to mount New volumes such as pen drives. etc. Also my User Account unlock is now greyed out.
If I log in as a guest I can mount volumes but not as administrator.
Everything else such as root etc seems ok its probably to do with the grayed in unlock on the user account. Ideas please.

Update: If I hover mouse over padlock even though I am logged in its says
System policy prevents changes Contact your system administrator.

From the bug report, it seems like the only workaround is to remove LightDM and install GDM over it.

Can you try the following commands?

sudo apt-get remove lightdm
sudo apt-get install gdm
