Problem with automatic mounting of camera

Using FC5 and KDE 3.5.4 (from kde-redhat) in a multi-user environment (me, my 
wife, and my son). 

When I plug our camera into the USB port, I get a dialog asking me what to do 
with the newly found device, regardless of the number of other users logged 
in, or the order in which we log in. I can open it in a new window, and have 
access to the pictures through media:/camera. 

However, my wife's user code does not get this dialog. When she plugs the 
camera in, she always gets this error mesage: "Cannot find parent item 
media:/ in the tree. Internal error."
If no one else is logged in, or if she was the first to log in, the camera 
will get mounted and Konqueror's file manager will open media:/camera and 
she'll have access to the pictures despite the error message.
If she plugs the camera in and another user is logged into the system before 
her, she just gets the error message and cannot access the pictures in the 
camera. (media:/camera opens in konqueror to a blank page).

Where might this behavior be controlled? Is there a setting in ~/.kde for
