Before I answer your above queries, a little update. I rebooted my
machine this morning and the USB stick was being mounted and the icon
was being displayed properly on the desktop. Then I did an upgrade and
noticed gnome-volume-manager (and probably hal) got upgraded. Since
then, I again lost the USB stick automatic mounting and the icon on the
pmount is installed:
$> dpkg -l pmount | grep ^ii
ii pmount 0.4.3-1 mount removable devices as normal user
And gnome-volume-manager is running:
$> ps uax | grep gnome-vol
me 5768 0.0 2.6 17684 6868 ? Ss 23:41 0:00
gnome-volume-manager --sm-client-id default5
I am not sure what "registered in gnome session" means though(?) Maybe
this is the culprit.
