Any hints? Anyone can cormirm this behaviour?


Yep its here to with dvd & usb automounting gnome gives me the dialog you mentioned plus the very informative one with just a stop sign and no text??? rewinding hal* to 5.8 and ConsoleKit brings back dvd automounting but usb mounts are still dead on the desktop :-(

Short answer - if you are not logging in through GDM (if you do like I do and you start at runlevel 3, log in via the console, and then run startx) then the changes to HAL for fast user switching mean you won't be able to automount media.
