HAL leaves user-mounted removeable media mounted after user logs off

Description of problem:
If a user attaches a USB storage device (say a pen drive) the device is automatically mounted. If the user then logs off, the device is not unmounted. I see this being a danger in that a user might assume that if he logs off, he/she could just pull the pen drive out.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attach a USB storage device while logged in as a user.
2. Log out
3. At the login screen press Ctl-Alt-F1 and log in as root. Type "mount"
Actual Results: Removable storage volumes remain mounted.
Expected Results: Removable storage volumes shuld have been unmounted when the user who mounted them logged out.
hal isn't responsible for mounting/unmounting volumes, so this bug is filed in
the wrong component. Please file a bug against gnome-volume-manager and/or
whatever KDE package handles automounting instead.
Refiling for component gnome-mount
