DriveSetup: reversed behavior for (un)mounted volumes

The Partition menu seems to have reversed behavior for most partitions. eg, Mount and Initialize are available on currently mounted BFS partitions. The reverse for unmounted.

See attached images for visuals.

Still seeing this very frequently. It seems that the only way for me to correct the behavior is to use DriveSetup to Partition->MountAll, Rescan, Use Tracker to unmount all Volumes (except boot), Use DriveSetup to Rescan, and then finally Initialize.

still persistant at hrev32211-gcc2. gcc4 untested.

DriveSetup still mixes up partitions, sometimes not letting you unmount a mounted partition, resulting in you not being able to repartition or format as you need to. It can make you unable or unwilling to install Haiku. Alpha newcomers can not be expected to know about the workarounds.

Reassigning to Bryce. Maybe he's motivated to have a look. :-)
