I am not sure but this could be related to this: "... from the kernel 2.6.25,
USB support has been totally rewritten; as a result, a lot of USB devices have
had problems with HAL ..." (see
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/linux-hardware-18/can-not-detect-usb-in-open-suse-11-663732/
and
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/linux-hardware-18/usb-stopped-working-with-2.6.26-kernel-659951/
).

My problem is that when I plug in (while already in Linux) my USB Stick
(KINGSTON Data Traveler) it will get detected but not mounted. When I click the
device in Dolphin or the Kicker Menu (or what it is called in KDE 4) it will
mount but with "incorrect" charset (utf8 instead of iso8859-1). If I copy the
files with rsync and do a charset conversion from iso8859-1 to utf8 when
copying from the USB drive to my HDD both the copying process and the filenames
works fine.

I am not sure how and if this is connected with this bug but I suspect it
might, and this because of the 10.3 upgrade to 11.0 of the kernel to version
2.6.25 or later.

See attachments above.
