[Pkg-utopia-maintainers] Bug#495485: hal: non-partitioned devices don't get auto-mounted

Package: hal
Version: 0.5.11-2
Severity: normal

for storage devices that are created without any partition, auto-mount doesn't work at all.
I have 2 such devices, a USB HDD and a USB Stick. Both unpartitioned and a filesystem on top of it with a filesystem label. When plugged in, they don't get automounted.
