Hmmm, reportbug says:

Your version (0.9.23-2) of pmount appears to be out of date.
The following newer release(s) are available in the Debian archive:
  experimental: 0.9.99-alpha-1
  unstable: 0.9.23-3+b2
Do you still want to file a report [y|N|q|?]? N

but

# apt-get update
# apt-get install pmount

gives:

pmount is already the newest version.

so I'd probably have to move from wheezy to something newer to be up to
date on that utility. No time for that now.

The nifty pmount feature becomes unnecessary if I instead disable the
automounter, eliminating label-defined mountpoints. But:

# apt-get install dconf-editor      # gives:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 dconf-editor : Depends: libdconf1 (>= 0.25.1) but it is not going to be installed
                Depends: libglib2.0-0 (>= 2.55.1) but 2.33.12+really2.32.4-5 is to be installed
                Depends: libgtk-3-0 (>= 3.22.0) but 3.4.2-7+deb7u1 is to be installed

so the easiest way might just be to remove nautilus, as it's never been
used here. The gnome DE wouldn't fall over without it?
