Description of problem:
I plug the camera into USB, a windows pops up asking me if I want to import pictures.
I click "Import Photos"
Another identical window pops up with the same question (which is dismiss by clicking Cancel) plus another window which is the "Import Photos" dialog from gthumb.
I tell it to import photos, but then it says there are no pictures found.

The camera is correctly detected as Olympus C-2040Z.

for me its quite the same.

i have a canon a400 usb camera attached.
now when i turn it on, the import window appears saying:

"An error occurred in the io-library ('Could not claim the USB device'): Could
not claim interface 0 (Operation not permitted). Make sure no other program or
kernel module (such as sdc2xx, stv680, spca50x) is using the device and you have
read/write access to the device."

/sbin/lsusb tells correctly:
Bus 001 Device 006: ID 04a9:30b7 Canon, Inc.

when i start gthumb *as root* and import the photos, it *works OK* for me.

can't tell when this bad behavior started, but it worked ok a month before as a
normal user.

btw. this is all with using latest rawhide.

This issue should be gone with the latest rawhide package, which is now using
HAL and udev rules.
