In order for a user to mount devices from Konqueror/Nautilus (using HAL), they
must be in the "plugdev" group. To add a user to the plugdev group, either
use kuser or run the command as root:

I've seen this detail trip up plenty of people before, and something will have
to be done about it.
Firstly a hidden requirement to add users to a particular group merely
to use a normal desktop system is not reasonable behavior.
Secondly part of the bug report is that the error message is completely
incomprehensible. I don't see any indication that this has been improved.
Therefore I'm reopening this bug report.
