Subject: /usr/bin/palimpsest: palimpsest does not recognize NTFS (displays UNKNOWN)

Package: gnome-disk-utility
Version: 2.30.1-2
Severity: normal
File: /usr/bin/palimpsest


when mounting a USB keys with fileformat NTFS, palimpsest simply display 'Unknown' for the file system type
It would be nice to display NTFS instead

Here is the info from mount:

/dev/sdc1 on /media/test2 type fuseblk (rw,nosuid,nodev,allow_other,blksize=4096,default_permissions)
