Here is the deal,

	When I stick the card in, as my normal user I can't access the device shown 
under "Services" "Storage Media" and there is no "disk" entry in /media.

	If I start konqueror running as root and then access "Services" "Storage 
Media" and the SD card (/dev/mmcblk0p1 in this case), Presto the device 
automatically appears as "disk" under /media and then I *can* access it (rw) 
as my normal user. What gives? What permissions are stuck?
