Desktop icons from mounted drives briefly flash, changing from the drive icon to a folder icon and then back in an instant. They do this approximately every 10 seconds, and I think it's also trying to update the disk-space free at the same time.

I see this behavior with my internal HD, my network mounts, and an external USB drive mounted as a time-machine volume.
