Okay, that's a clue to the source.  There seems to be a "KDE HAL
Device Manager", which I assume (from its name) should be controlling
this.  Can you get into a configuration for that and see what you can
do?  [Sorry I can't help more now, but I don't use KDE, and my machine
with a card reader is powered down at the moment.]
