Cannot Read From /media/.hal-mtab

When i use DVD-RW - i can't normally unmount CD or DVD.

This patch definitely has the undesired side-effect Patrice mentions. hence /media/.hal-mtab could not be changed, and hence the error message.

To clean this up locally on your system, please remove empty unused mount points in /media manually (no way to do it automatically in a safe fashion, sorry).
