nm-applet problems, usb mounting problems and accessing sound device
problems - all of them have been boiled down to ConsoleKit-0.4.3.
There was a change between 0.4.1 (works) and 0.4.3 (doesn't work) that
makes 0.4.3 unusable in PLD for the moment. More details here:

For CK-0.4.1:
ck-list-sessions shows for current session
active = TRUE
and everything (nm-applet, sound, mounting usd drives) works fine.

For CK-0.4.3:
ck-list-sessions shows for currens session
active = FALSE
and nothing from above list works...

The attached patch has been found in the debian bug report. It fixes the
issue, but it's a simple revert of the changes that introduced the
problem. It _should_not_ be pushed to the PLD repo without discussion
about possible side effects.
