Yes, I have the action in the device notifier. Before, it did nothing, now it opens Dolphin. I can also manually open the cd's "pseudo-folder" in Dolphin, then "audiocd:/" is automagically set in the address bar. In both cases, nothing appears in the folder view, it just pretends to. Clearly, there's something buggy there. Was not as clear earlier becuase I didn't even have action and/or audiocd: .
