What is trying to write to a write-protected memory card?

Thunar (xfce 4.4) along with hal has no problem automounting an SD 
card... unless that card is write-protected.

There's a delay while the system tries and thinks it fails to mount the 
card--twice.  Eject the card and the system reboots as if it was 
mounted.  Try a clean shutdown and the system eventually gives up with 
one buffer remaining.

Is it Thunar trying to write something to the card, or hal, or something
