IMO this is a bug in gnome-vfs-daemon and not in HAL. The daemon should use 
the same methods as e.g. lshal use in monitor mode (from libhal). 

If gnome-vfs-daemon use own functions to listen for device changes in HAL, the 
damon should ignore all events/messages for temporary devices where UDI 
starts with '/org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/temp/'. I think the bug is in the 
filter function.
