Upgrade breaks USB disk automount

I have had such serious problems with the Breezy -> Dapper upgrade and hal
that I am about to wipe the disk and reinstall from scratch. This is a drag
as I fear losing some add on stuff that I may not be able to find anymore.
Booting chokes on hald when init executes the 20hald script called
from /etc/init.d/dbus It chokes when hald is becoming a daemon. After a 5
minute timeout, it exits with code 2. Similar problems calling the
aforementioned init scrips from a console after boot, or trying to load hald
directly, without a script. (Run directly, the exit code is 1, but the
result is the same.)
Its a deal breaker. Here are some of the effects:
1, usb devices, like iPod do not display on k desktop. I can mount them
manually after creating an fstab line, but transferring stuff to these
mounted devices is very, very slow.
2. Can't mount samba shares. I can browse the shares on this machine from a
remote machine, and can browse the remote using the smb:/ protocol, but can't
mount and have apps treat them as local directories.
3. access to ~/Documents and ~/Desktop is very slow. Non-kde apps, like
firefox are very slow to display file dialogs. KDE apps are ok as long as
the default directory is not ~/Documents or ~/Desktop
