Sort of. Your mail reminded me that this stuff doesn't get logged very
well.

In the past what I'd have told you to do is stop the HAL service and
then run haldaemon manually with the options to make it run foregrounded
and be verbose. Unfortunately, I'm not sure if that's what you do with
DeviceKit too. David, help! What's the procedure in this case? What do
you do when you want to see what devicekit's doing (and where it's going
wrong)?
