Hal starts up fine.  With the new udev I get the following processes:

hald-addon-acpi: listening on acpi kernel interface /proc/acpi/event

With the old udev I also get:

hald-addon-input: Listening on /dev/input/event1 /dev/input/event2 
/dev/input/event3 /dev/input/event4 /dev/input/event5 /dev/input/event6
hald-addon-storage: polling /dev/sr0 (every 2 sec)

The storage one will be a libvolume_id issue but not sure about the 
other two.

Running "ifconfig wlan0 up" adds these lines to the dmesg output.
