UPDATE:  I have udev started at boot with hotplug, dbus-1,

Now when I turn on the external firewire burner udev creates a sr0 and
then after using it I turn off the unit (it is a really noisy Lacie) and
then I turn it back on to use it again and udev creates the sr0 again
but after doing this a couple of times with any firewire device, udev
stops creating the block devices like it is telling me I used up my
limit and will not work again for me until I reboot.  Last night I got
every thing working burning a cd with nautulis but after doing nothing
to the system it on its own deciceds not to work.  It is like udev puts
time limits

I can get things to work here and there but for some reason, which I
can't find out, it does not work again.
