I've a problem automounting an USB stick on KDE 4.5.5 and current. At the very 
first time after booting the machine, I can insert the USB stick and the stick 
will be automounted without problems. But if I unmount it using the eject 
button and remove the stick, it will not be automounted again if I reinsert it 

After reinserting the stick, I get a 

Error: org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.PermissionDeniedByPolicy: 
org.freedesktop.hal.storage.mount-fixed auth_admin_keep_always <-- (action, 

It's funny, because HAL thinks that it's a 'mount-fixed' device and not a 
'mount-removeable' one (which HAL reports at the very first time).

So what's wrong with HAL or my setup? How can I track down that problem or is 
it already a well-known one?
