As Aaron J. Seigo correctly said, that one was ConsoleKit-related. What login
manager were you using? If it was something other than KDM (with Fedora
patches) or GDM, it's not even expected to work, as those are still the only
ones with ConsoleKit integration.

I'm not sure whether this is the same error and HAL uses a different (IMHO less
useful for debugging) error message or whether it is a different bug. What this
says is that PolicyKit is denying the permission to mount the medium. This is
of course broken, but the message doesn't tell us why exactly it's denying
that. It might be because it isn't detecting an active session (-> ConsoleKit)
or it might be that the policy just doesn't allow it to anyone. In the first
case, it's probably a problem with KDM (unless you're using some other login
manager which doesn't support ConsoleKit at all), in the second, it's the
PolicyKit policies which are screwed up, so we need to know.
Can you run this please:
and tell us the output? That will tell us if there's a valid session running
and should help us discerning who's at fault here.
