I would think so, too.  I had thought that this particular card reader
was causing trouble because it has multiple slots (so I think it would
show up in Windows, for instance, as G:, H:, I: -- if you had enough
cards inserted at the same time).  For some reason inserting the card is
not triggering the LTSP system to mount the device.  As I said
previously, re-plugging in the card reader does trigger LTSP to mount
the device.
