Thank you.  Very interesting and potentially useful info.

Do note however that hal is deprecated and kde is moving off of it, IIRC 
with kde 4.6.  It's thus reasonably likely that you'll need to modify your 
workaround somewhat when you upgrade to that.  However, it should be 
easier to figure out what they've changed, having done it once already, 
and it's possible your workaround will continue to work, as-is.
