After removing the symlink "/etc/mtab -> /proc/mounts" kio_media does not 
crash any longer. The ioslave seems to have a problem with parsing the 
contents of /proc/mounts. 

Now, I was able to mount devices using KDE. But another problem remains. How 
can I disable the "sync" mount option? This option might be suitable for 
small USB memory sticks only, since it reduces the write performance 
dramatically. This prevents usage of the kio_media for USB harddisks. How can 
I disable the sync option?
