Yes. HalFaq was followed on installation of the desktop and at that time
the disk was correctly identified as removable.
Now, when we try to mount the disk the policykit error refers to
mount-fixed permission, not mount-removable. The users have
mount-removable permissions (and now mount-fixed as a work around).
The lshal output provided with the report, clearly shows that removable
is not set. I've done tracing in hald source to see where it gets it's
info from and it points to cam, but I'm unable to figure out how to get
that info from camcontrol(8). If you know a way how to do that, I'll add
it to the report.
