After further investigation it seems that adding myself to the plugdev
group in /etc/group works, but using the facility of
/etc/security/group.conf :

gdm;*;*;Al0000-2400;cdrom, audio, video, hal, plugdev, users, fuse,
scanner, floppy, console
login;*;*;Al0000-2400;cdrom, audio, video, hal, plugdev, users, fuse,
scanner, floppy, console
ssh;*;*;Al0000-2400;users, fuse

which yields correcly the plugdev and others groups in the terminal when
typing "groups", does not work.

I presume that this is because of the "slave" structure of KDE.

I really would like to know what are the precise messages sent by KDE,
and by which user/group combination.

However, I am sorry to say that 377689 is not fixed, but the fault may
not be in hal anymore.

Or is the /etc/security/groups.conf not supported?
