Obviously I was confused when I wrote about atapicam, in fact the message is about acd0.
Anyway I'm sure that no media was inserted during the whole uptime.
I'm running both 6 and 7 stable and I've never seen this before too.

Few minutes ago, while cron was running, the system froze for a couple of minutes and the these lines was added to /var/log/messages:

	acd0: WARNING - PREVENT_ALLOW taskqueue timeout - completing request directly
	acd0: WARNING - PREVENT_ALLOW freeing taskqueue zombie request

and again, no media was inserted.
The only change I did in the last days was enabling powerd, I have no idea if this could be related.
