kde automount and notifier problem - addition

I want to add two things:

1. The running of 'KDED Media Manager' is sticky.  Even if I 
uncheck the startup box it is started after logging out/in KDE or 
even after rebooting the system.  I have to enter KDE control 
center and turn it off manually.

2. These problems also exist in suse's KDE 3.5.5 release 45.1 
(I updated in the meantime).

Should I report these as bugs?

> 1. KDED Media Manager
> 2. Media Notifier Daemon
> If both are running the result is the above, notifier pops up
