usb related problems (suse 9.1)

I've recently switched from suse 9.0 to 9.1 and I experience two usb related problems.

1) Automounting USB flash drive ("key")
when I plug in the key disk gets auto mounted and creates an entry in /etc/mtab but not /etc/fstab!

-- "/etc/mtab":
/dev/sda1 /media/usb-storage-odd-CANYONUSB20Disk-USBMassStorageDevice:0:0:0p1 subfs rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev,sync,fs=floppyfss,procuid 0 0

-- "mount" says:
/dev/sda1 on /media/usb-storage-odd-CANYONUSB20Disk-USBMassStorageDevice:0:0:0p1 type subfs (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev,sync,fs=floppyfss,procuid)

problem is that I cannot umount /dev/sda1 as normal user:
> umount /dev/sda1
umount: /dev/sda1 is not in the fstab (and you are not root)

2) USB 2.0 possible error?
on my old computer (with just usb 1.1) my usb hub (on LG1710B) worked perfectly, it had usb mouse and a wacom tablet connectedd
now on my new computer (epox 8rda+, 6 usb port, 4back, 2 front) if I plug the hub (and mouse in it...) the hub stops working after some time (app 10 minutes), also the front 2 usb don't work correctly or at all when the hub is connected.
USBview says (my comment in ""):
EHCI Host Controller "2.0"
USB Embedded Hub "usb flash drive"
OHCI Host Controller "1.1"
OHCI Host Controller
USB-PS/2 optical mouse
ET-04... "wacom tablet"

It seem system recognizes devices correctly but fails after some time?!?

Thank you in advance.
