First of all, let me say that the mount_finish function does not
perform the actual mount operation. It usually only fills the GError
if there was an error during mounting.
Another thing: I think GUnixVolume is only used for mounts that are
specified in /etc/fstab or that belong to partitions on your regular
hard drives. For things such as USB sticks and CD drives, your system
most likely uses GduVolumeMonitor from GVfs.

If the issue is not that mounting doesn't work but that you don't see
partitions in the side pane of Thunar, then the reason is that Thunar
hides everything that GIO assumes can not be mounted/ejected by the
current user. So local partitions that can only mounted by root etc. are
