I applied the patch to hal and threw it to testing. I had another user 
test this: Without the patch, Xorg input hotplugging broke. When he 
added the udevinfo script like above, it worked again. I guess all udev 
interaction (including Allan's nm issue) are related to this.

I'll upload a new cryptsetup as well, as the current version calls 
udevsettle ... the next version of cryptsetup will work without that though.
