Debian defaults to NOT running hal as root, this has as a side effect that we
can't query this stuff from harddisk. Hopefully this situation will change in
the 0.6.x series See debian bug #290653 for more information..

It's always good to first check debian bts or file a debian bug if your not
sure if it's an upstream problem..
