Does that work when not using pmount but only hal to mount devices? Can the 
other side of d-bus messages be aware of such group memberships?:

Unless d-bus started to support this during the last month, setting plugdev 
via PAM will not always work (only when using pmount).
Same probably goes for network-manager and its netdev group.
