Ah, great, so we surrounded the culprit at least. :)
So let's do the strace dance for these two helpers. Please restart hal (just rebooting is easiest, or do sudo
/etc/dbus-1/event.d/20hal restart), then find out the process IDs of the storage addons:
ps axo pid,cmd |grep hald-addon-storage
Then, for each pid, do
sudo strace -f -o PID.trace -p PID
(replace 'PID' by the current pid you are examining) and let it run for a minute, then press Ctrl+C.
Then, please find out which of the two processes was responsible for the disk access (by killing one and checking whether or not the disk access still happens). Please attach the .trace file for the responsible process.
