As a result, apparently, both caja and thunar now show 21 separate
entries under "Devices", of which 19 or 20 are dead and useless. (I
can't test the Samsung Galaxy Note links because, well, the physical
USB port is broken.)

What kernel version? Do the entries disappear on reboot?


No idea, because I don't want to reboot now.

With kernel 4.14, and stale entries disappearing on reboot, see these reports (one by me):

I see you already added to the bug report on this. Thanks. That does
look like the same problem I'm seeing. If it's a kernel bug I'm sure
it will get fixed soon.
