    Unhappy 11.2 RC1 flash automounting broken

    I recently upgraded to 11.2 Rc1. Everything sees to be fine except the auto mounting. I use KDE 4.3.2. When I plug a USB flash drive, it is recognized by the system, KDE's plugged devices plasmoid shows it, but nothing happens when I click on it. Same in Dolphin. I should also mention that Dolphin no longer navigates to HDD partitions through items in its' "entry points" list. Those partitions are mounted and can be accessed through /mnt/[something] normally. I consider this is somehow related.
    Here's what I got in /var/log/messages when the flash drive is connected:

    The last line is dropped to the log again and again until I unplug the drive.
    What should I do? Maybe add my user account to some group? Update some authentication in policykit or whatever?

    Report it as a bug. There are other automounting bugs - so it would be helpful to have them all listed in Bugzilla.

    Show me the bug tracker please
    Also, I suspect the problem source is related to HAL & Dbus. CD auto mounting doesn't work too, and I got an error from Dbus when tried to eject the disk through Dolphin. Unfortunately I didn't copy it. Should I mention this in a bug report?

    I've just fixed the problem.
    I reinstalled hal and ivman packages and also updated all other to newest. Then I restarted haldaemon and ivman and, voila, it works now! I think there were some interpackage configuration problems.
