Mint 3.0 automounts NTFS drives twice

I'm running Linux Mint 3.0 (gnome), and I have it configured to automount other media (flash sticks, USB drives, other HD's, etc) and then put an icon on the desktop for that drive (pretty standard fare, right?).

Anyway, I have two hard drives, a 250 gb ATA/133 disk (hda) and a 120 gb SATA drive (sda). Linux owns all of the 120 gig drive, and the 250 gig disk is partitioned into 3 parts all with NTFS partitions. On booting up Mint, I get the nice little icons labeled "hda1" and "hda3", as well as one for the third partition of the drive, named "Media" (I named the partition that myself, I didn't assign names to the other two). However, I also have two additional icons, which say "40GB NTFS Volume (hda1)" and "72GB NTFS Volume (hda3)". Both icons that lead to hda1 and hda3 work respectively, but I don't know why it's making two icons for each one (but there's only one icon for "Media", which is hda5).

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
