Issue Description

Hi, I can’t mount with udiskie 1.4.9 on a headless Debian testing (stretch) but I can successfully mount “manually”:

...@...:~$ udiskie-mount -a
failed to mount /org/freedesktop/UDisks2/block_devices/sdb1: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.UDisks2.Error.NotAuthorized: Not authorized to perform operation
...@...:~$ sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /tmp/

See more details in #111 Appreciate any help!
