Nothing of any real importance IMHO.

This is not easy due to the underlying architecture of the media manager
system.  Besides this, it would be confusing to most users to see
greyed-out options for settings that the underlying code cannot support at
this time.

Just ignore this.  Eventually the idea is to allow users to configure udev
through that module, but for now it only reads/displays the current system

I just pushed two new commits to tdelibs and tdebase; they should resolve
the warnings printed above, as well as restore proper removable media
device icons.

Yes.  If anyone ever sees these messages, please send them to this mailing
list.  They indicate that TDEHWLib did not recognize one or more devices
on your system, and they also include enough information to fix detection.
