This is not a hal bug - it looks more to me like a kernel or Nautilus
bug. Reassigning to Nautilus for now.
Surely this is a kernel bug, there is even an oops in the log.
This sounds similar to bug 129966
An update has been released for Fedora Core 3 (kernel-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3) which
may contain a fix for your problem. Please update to this new kernel, and
report whether or not it fixes your problem.
If you have updated to Fedora Core 4 since this bug was opened, and the problem
still occurs with the latest updates for that release, please change the version
field of this bug to 'fc4'.
I tried mounting my usb flash memory both Fedora Core 3 and Fedora Core 4, and
the lastest kernel seems to work very well.
In fact, I have not faced with this bug since I updated the kernel of Fedora
Core 3 for a long time before. I'm sorry that I don't remember what the kernel
version is. But I think this bug was related to bug #129966.
Thank you for fixing bugs.
