I *can* mount removable media via pmount utility.

I never used the pmount utility, but are you sure it's not a suid binary?

it requires granted root permission :^)

I have a laptop which does not have the added line in /etc/pam.d/xdm which
functions as expected, automagically mounts removable media.

Maybe memory is failing me here, wouldn't be the first time.  But I can no
longer, if ever, automagically mount removable media on the laptop.

I don't use the automount feature either (I'm paranoid, I know), but just for
information, I've always been able to mount removable media in 12.1 without
problems, even before adding the pam_systemd module as described in the
original post. Probably your problem lays somewhere else.

I do and have and am able to manually mount removable and static devices
just as I have been able to since ?? 5.0 in SuSE and previous that in
Marmaduke. I appreciate the automatic mounting and miss it in 12.1.

note that all devices listed in /etc/fstab do mount correctly including
removable and networked devices.

I suppose someone will blame it on systemd :^)
