Mine works, here's last couple line of /var/log/messages:

Funny part is my OpenSUSE Boxed DVD does not show mounted desktop ICON but
YaST sees it. This is mounted Data Backup DVD made with K3B.

Hope this helps. Other point, I installed Ivman but have never configured or
used it. Have you tried removing it (Ivman)?
