Bug description:
  Binary package hint: hal

  This is a machine that was upgraded (six months ago) from 7.04 to 7.10
  and not to 8.04 beta.

  When I plug in an USB device hal doesn't mount it. This happens with more than one device (tried
  U3 MP3 player and a small card reader). The same devices work well in my laptop that is also running hardy.

  Looking at the output of hald --daemon=no I get something like:

          using action org.freedesktop.hal.storage.mount-removable for uid 1000, system_bus_connection :1.123
          pid 8027: rc=1 signaled=0: /usr/lib/hal/hal-storage-mount
          Run started hald-probe-storage (10000) (0) 
          !  full path is '/usr/lib/hal/hald-probe-storage', program_dir is '/usr/lib/hal'
          pid 8034: rc=2 signaled=0: /usr/lib/hal/hald-probe-storage

  In the laptop where everything works, I can see some extra lines just
  after the first above that says:

          passed privilege
          3563: XYA creating /media/.hal-mtab~
          3563: XYA closing /media/.hal-mtab~
          3563: XYA done renaming /media/.hal-mtab~ /media/.hal-mtab
          3563: XYA released lock on /media/.hal-mtab-lock

  I will attach the files described in
  https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingRemovableDevices, maybe they can

  The output of the id commands are:
