Let me tell you that this bug (or whatever causes it) made me give up on 
Dapper and move to Edgy. That I am in many other ways unhappy with but 
that seems stable on this. For me even CDs became unmountable under KDE.

In /media I could see them as root, not my normal user. If that helps 
you. If you sort it let me know.
