Mounting USB sticks, DVDs, CDs, etc - this works flawlessly with
distributions I've tried (Ubuntu), but with Fedora it's something that
seems to stop working randomly, whenever the packages update to jour

I've a F7 system, fully updated, and now when I insert a USB stick, I
get the HAL error "permission denied: not in active session".
This is annoying because it's something that's supposed to just work. It
does work in Ubuntu. Heck, it works fine in XP. But not in Fedora.
Moreover, it's not a new thing. Previous releases of Fedora used to
display this same problem, which never seems to be solved completely.
It's like "removable media? who cares whether it works properly or not?"
Come one, people, wake up.
I was not experiencing any problem with usb-storage on my F7 system as
of last week. Nor was my wife on her nearly default F7 configuration
including selinux set to enforcing. Nor have we experienced it on the
problem after installing F8 on the same hardware.
Difficult to know based on the information you have if this is a
configuration hiccup on your system or something widespread that I was
lucky enough to avoid on multiple systems.
