Now that you mention it, I have not had good results swapping cards with the 
reader plugged in, or swapping to a different kind of card.  I don't know if 
that's supposed to work or not, but it doesn't here.  I do exactly what you 
said, and put the card in the reader before plugging the reader in.

Make sure you close the view after you're done with a card.  I've found if a 
now non-existent reader is still mounted in a now defunct view, then the card 
doesn't get picked up when I re-attach the reader.

With consistent management practices, it seems to work reliably.  I haven't 
had to fool around with manual mounting and umounting since I worked out how 
to avoid getting things tripped up.
