Bug#386383: kdebase-kio-plugins: mounting a device ignores "mount point" setting

Package: kdebase-kio-plugins
Version: 4:3.5.4-2
Severity: normal

I'm really not sure if this bugreport should go to hal instead of 

After last update of hal, mounting a device ignores KDE mount point 
setting. This setting can be changed making right click on a device 
icon -> Properties -> Mounting -> Mountpoint.

In the previous version of hal (just the one that caused problems with
mounting in kde because the policy setting), this worked ok. 

Now the behaviour is mount the device under /media using the name of 
the volume (in case of DVDs) or the name of the device (in case of USB 
disks or memory cards). This makes impossible to share the media via 
samba just because each DVD has a different volume name or have 
persistent names for devices who have the same name to the system 
(they got named  "usbdisk", "usbdisk-1", "usbdisk-2" depending on the 
order of connection).

I have no entries for these devices in fstab. If I make entries for
these devies based on /dev/disk/by-id/* names then mounting via KDE
just fails with no error message, but mounting from the command line 

Any help will be very appreciated. 

Thanks for your work.
