Hmm, it works here for me, SVN rev 23550.  Is the volume mounted before
you double click?  If not, xfdesktop will try to mount it, but if
mounting fails, or if it can't figure out the mount point, it won't open
the volume -- though it should display an error message if that's the
case (though it's possible that's not working for all cases).

Can you try mounting the volume first, and then try to open it.  If that
does work, that probably means the automount stuff isn't working properly.
