[Bug 65662] Re: Not possible to mount USB stick after upgrading to kde-3.5.5

Another "me-too" here, except I get an actual error message:

"A security policy in place prevents this sender from sending this 
message to this recipient, see message bus configuration file (rejected 
message had interface "org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.Volume" 
member "Mount" error name "(unset)"
destination "org.freedesktop.Hal")

How to reproduce:
Inserting the USB drive causes the "what do you want to do?" dialog from the KDE Daemon.  I click "Open in New Window" but no window appears.  Also, when I have Amarok running, it asks to auto-configure the drive for music playing.

Since the dialogs haven't worked, I go to "media:/" in konqueror and
click on the drive.  The drive is labeled "unmounted removable medium"
in the on-hover popup.  Clicking on the icon brings up the above error

I can access the flash drive by cli, though, with the command `sudo
mount -t vfat /dev/sdi1 /mnt/flashdrive/`, so I'm guessing it's not a
system error, just a KDE one.  Just a conjecture.

I've never had problems with USB sticks before on KDE, but I'm not 100%
certain this bug is from KDE 3.5.5  I do remember it working before I
upgraded from Edgy Beta, though.  Hopefully this info can help the devs
debug what's going on.  Thanks
