Dear folks,

I have recently successfully updated an amd 64 bit machine from 8.1 to
8.2 release and reinstalled most of the previously installed ports.
Now, I tried to use my usb disk and it is not automounting :(  I like
the convenience of automounting and I checked hal and dbus and they
are both enabled and to be safe I deinstalled and installed them again
and still does not automount.
