Hi Sergey, yes that is it, thanks.
If I connect the reader to the USB hub first then put the card in, it
only creates the top level devices, but it I put the card in the reader,
_then_ connect the reader then all the devices are created.
I guess that to make this work with my phone I would have to connect the
phone when it is switched off, then switch it on - but it is quicker to
make two mount attempts ;-)
At least I know what is happening now, and that it's not something
broken with my system.
