hald reading block devices



The latest version of hald wants to read all block devices of the 
form /dev/hd? .  Why is this?  Can we make it stop?

I would prefer not to grant read access to the hard disks in the SE Linux 
configuration (it means that an exploit on the hald would grant access to all 
data on the machine).

Also one of my machines is logging the following repeatedly:
