I get "You are not privileged to mount the volume" for CDs

Description of problem:
When I place a non-blank CD in my CDROM drive, I get the message "You are
not privileged to mount the volume '<volume-name>'."
This is against gnome-mount, but may be related to hal and/or fstab-sync.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have an /etc/fstab entry:
/dev/scd0 /media/cdrecorder auto pamconsole,exec,noauto,managed 0 0
2. Insert an non-blank CD
Popup "You are not privileged to mount the volume '<volume-name>'."
CD is mounted.
Commenting out the above fstab entry resolves the issue.
Reassigning to HAL.. we should have a script in %post than cleans out all
entries in /etc/fstab created by fstab-sync in older releases. John, can you do
Marking as FC5Blocker.
John, will you do this before Monday ?
It should be done already in the latest hal release.
I saw this too but after syncing with rawhide last night and rebooting this is
now fixed for me.
I experienced this with FC5 release on several of my upgraded FC4 machines.
