another rply to myself:

I did an update to the eject program and now the eject to my ipod is 
working again (the ipod icon on my desktop is vanishing) and the "do 
not disconnect" messate at my ipod is leaving. This works only as 

for users this does not work. With current hal there is no entry in 
the fstab, so normal users are not allowed to exit those partitions. 
Are there other solutions than changeing the kdeeject script (add 
sudo to the eject call).
