For your TDEHW to do list:

I rebuilt pmount with --enable-hal=no. No difference.

In case eject had some HAL dependencies, I installed hal and started the HAL daemon. No difference.

I rebuilt eject with a slew of patches from Arch. At least one of the patches makes a big difference with ejecting CDs/DVDs.

The only trick I have found thus far to remove the USB icons from the desktop as non-root is to set /usr/bin/eject setuid.

I notice some functions in halbackend.cpp regarding privileges. Perhaps something similar is needed for TDEHW?
