I do use KDE 4 and I have procfs mounted, but I still need those extra lines 
in PolicyKit.conf for my devices to mount in KDE.  Otherwise, they will either 
not show up at all in the device manager when attached or I would get errors 
like the OP was getting.  I just did a little test with an unmodified 
PolicyKit.conf and was unable to mount my USB hard drive.  I start KDE with 
startx, however, I don't use KDM.
