To me this sounds more like a timing problem. I'd hope that the mounting process is independent of dolphin (or whatever other application would try to acces the mountpoint). The fact that you can wait, launch dolphin manually and find the new volume in the side-bar (or Places thingy) would support that interpretation.

Or do you get the same issue if you wait a reasonable time (for instance until the popup menu closes itself again) and then use the "Open in Dolphin" menu? In that case there must indeed be something wrong with the way dolphin is invoked by that menu action.
