Description of problem:
First I had to include the line
"match hd CardReader" under "device flash"
in updfstab.conf.default for my card reader (4 slots).
Mount points are then correctly created (flash, flash1, flash2, flash3).
But after some time (hours...) some mount points are "lost", for
example flash2 and flash3. Executing, as root, updfstab restores all
the mount points.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Plugin card reader
2. Check after a few hours
3. Some mount points are missing
4. run updfstab
5. Mount points reappear
Are there any kernel messages relating to the device?

USB kernel messages
This morning I just noticed something. The card reader is connected to
the USB hub integrated in the monitor. So when I switch off the
monitor, the hub is disconnected too! When I switch it on, all
connected USB devices will appear again to the kernel. The attachment
above reflects this. But then, the card reader devices are not
correctly handled. Could this be a timing problem?
There is a definite race... it's in bugzilla previously.
Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
This is now handled by HAL and fstab-sync in later releases. As such, updfstab
is unlikely to be modified.
