Me too have the same problem, I would like to not have to insert
password for browse e-sata disks, but now with dolphin 1.6.1 and kde
4.6.1 and kernel 2.6.38-18-desktop on suse 11.4 it seems to works
better, now I'm asked to insert password at the plug of e-sata disk
(previously don't, I had to open dolphin as root and then mount e-sata
disk ). ciao PLA :-)
