Mine is... especially if this would get run without the desktop running, 
since I am almost always logged in as 'kde' (build account) as well as 
my user, and have usually run some application as 'kde'.

This could (should?) be solved by saving the mount state at session save 
and trying to restore it on session restore, orthogonally to automount. 
And yes it /should/ store info about removable devices... if the device 
is there, it should attempt to mount it. If it isn't, well then you're 
no worse off than before.
