Description of problem:
When trying to download pictures from a new Olympus D535 camera, the
first time the camera was plugged in, camera was mounted as a USB
memory stick, the gthumb dialog "would you like to import photos"
correctly started, and we were able to download the photos. Unmounted
the /media/usbdisk, took some more pics, tried to download new pics,
but when plugging in the camera, it did not mount, and we did not get
the "import" dialog. Could not kill the "hald" (would not die);
rebooted the machine, killed the hald, and started "/usr/sbin/hald
--verbose=yes --daemon=no 2>/tmp/haldaemon.log", plugged camera in, it
worked!, unplugged, waited a few seconds, plugged camera in, did not
work, unplugged camera, no further activitiy on /tmp/haldaemon.log,
tried killing hald, would not kill.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start/Restart Hald.
2. Plug in Olympus D535.
3. Unplug Olympus D535.
4. Plug in Olympus D535.
5. Hal is toast!
Actual Results: hal no longer produced any "verbose" output and could
not be killed with "kill nnnn" or "kill -9 nnnn", and would not
detect/process subsequent "hotplug" events.
Expected Results: Should be able to plug device and see the mount,
then unplug and see the unmount, repeatedly.
