I'm sorry if my description is mistakable. My problem is that my
_desktop_ doesn't add the device as my _laptop_ does (which is inserts
the USB stick as /dev/sdb). The last mentionable output on my desktop is

   hald.c:81: Added device to GDL;

and after that, nothing useful seems to happen. It is neither recognized
as block device not inserted as /dev/sd*. And the abnormal behaviour
starts with the message

   hal.dev [5657]: DEVNAME is not set

so what is this?
