I've been seeing something similar over the past couple of months on my
Sid box.  I also found that issuing the `lsusb' command seems to "wake
up" the system in some way and KDE's Device Notifier will become active
and I can mount the flash drive.  I've also noticed that I need to do
the same for a USB-serial converter to be recognized.  Hoever, any
devices plugged in upon system start are recognized.
