My usb hard drive is always plugged to my computer so it's at boot that he should be mount. I have a special rules for him in my /etc/udev/rules.d/10-local.rules : 
BUS="usb", SYSFS{product}=="Seagate Mass Storage ", NAME="ddusb"

and a line in fstab : 
/dev/ddusb   /mnt/dd_usb   vfat  rw,gid=1000,uid=1000,umask=002,auto,user 0 0

at boot during the mount of all other device I got this message :
/dev/ddusb is not a block device

and after the boot I have to mount him using : sudo mount /dev/ddusb sometimes it works fine and sometimes I got the same message : 
cyril at ubuntu1:~$ sudo mount /dev/ddusb
mount: /dev/ddusb n'est pas un périphérique de type bloc

if I stop and relaunch my hard-drive it is automatically mount.

With breezy and the same configuration on a separate partition I never have this problem and my hard drive is always mount at boot.

MAYBE it can be link with this kde-bug I reported : http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=124670
