Someone has to take the bullet for people using testing =), and I can
live with the problems, so it's no big deal, but consider that this
bug will hit testing too, when hal migrates.
As a workaround if someone gets bitten, you can use dbus-send to
activate hal, for instance running
bus-send --system  --dest=org.freedesktop.Hal
/org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/computer org.freedesktop.Hal
in autostart.
