On my Sid/experimental mix:

$ dmesg
[19294.384809] usb-storage: device found at 7

$ pmount
Printing mounted removable devices:
/dev/sdi1 on /media/PRETEC type vfat

Well, I'm running Gnome, but I'm not sure which daemon is responsible
for this stuff at the moment - it's been working for me fine so no need
to debug. Maybe udev's calling pmount? (It would be nice if someone
could shed more light on current status of removable media management.)
