Package: konqueror
Version: 4:3.5.5a.dfsg.1-6etch1

I inserted a USB stick.  A window appeared with the following text:

  window title: KDE Daemon
    A new medium has been detected.
    What do you want to do?
    Medium type: Unmounted Removable Medium
      Open in New Window
      Do Nothing

I selected 'Open in New Window'.  A Konqueror window appears on
'system:/media/sda'; also an error message appears:

  window title: Error - Konqueror
    A security policy in place prevents this sender from sending this
    message to this recipient, see message bus configuration file
    (rejected message had interface "org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.Volume"
    member "Mount" error name "(unset)" destination

The Konqueror window remains open but is useless (attempting to
e.g. create a file produces a similar message to the above).

Closing since this problem should be fixed doing this:
