As it turns out, this has been reported as bug 270490
I posted a review at
which solve the issue for me
Please have a look at it
> Hello metalworkers!
> as far as I can see there has been some behavioral change in dealing with previously mounted devices (with the udisks backend at least):
> - in kde 4.6 and previous releases a device stays visible (in dolphin and the device notifier) after being unmounted;
> - in current master a device disappears after the release process.
> I am not sure whether this is a wanted feature or a bug, but I couldn't find a commit in the log where this behavior
> change is mentioned.
> If the change was planned, as the device notifier mantainer I don't quite like to have this as the default behavior:
> first of all because it's a quite radical change and people have been educated to the old way of dealing with devices since ever; on top of that, the behavior would be different for different backends, and this is not good at all.
> Moreover, there are issues with the feature as-is:
> in particular if a device with more than one partition is plugged in, and one partition is mounted, unmounting it will make
> all partitions disappear; this is definitely not correct, and not what the user would expect.
> Moreover I suspect that this applies also to multi-card readers and such and this is again unexpected.
> If the change is a bug, then I'll be happy to help fixing it :)
> Lukáš, do you know more about this?
