Yes :) You are right about dbus/hal/udev, but there are userland tools that
automount devices/play DVDs/browse photos/burn CDs on top of udev/hal/dbus
detection. Gnome uses gnome-volume-manager. There is also ivman, program that
does the same thing. I'm not sure what's KDE using, but gnome-volume-manager is
good choice for any window manager (you don't have to run Gnome to use it).

There is answer to your problem. dbus isn't running or it's broken.

ps ax | grep dbus - this would tell you if your dbus is running.
/etc/init.d/dbus will start it.

This is NOTABUG, untill proved otherwise :)
