g-v-m never unmounts devices while it is running. It just notices that a device
has been umounted and updates its internal state according to that.

I have to confess that I am really confused now. In comment #30, pmount failed
for you, but in comment #39 the mount command that pmount calls succeeds. Then
again, in comment .#46 pmount-hal (which is a light wrapper around pmount)
succeeds again. Can we please start again from the beginning?

Please log out of all gnome sessions, so that we disable gnome-vfs-daemon and
gnome-volume-manager. Then log in to a virtual console (Ctrl+Alt+F1), insert the
CF card. Does

  pmount-hal /org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/volume_uuid_701A_527B

succeed and does the card stay mounted? 

If so: Please unmount the card again with "pumount /dev/hdc1", log into Gnome,
and check whether the card gets mounted automatically and stays mounted.

If not: Please give me the output of  

  pmount-hal /org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/volume_uuid_701A_527B -v

Thanks! BTW, please feel free to catch me on IRC (#ubuntu-devel or #ubuntu on
Freenode, nick "pitti"), then we can debug this faster.
