I guess this is sort of a follow on to:

https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-1082234.html

So when I restart the panel, I am still able to unmount the mounted devices shown in the device notifier, but I am no longer able to remount them (or mount any new devices) there. Is there some way of fixing (maybe restarting) that? Don't even know where to look for detailed messages (there is nothing in /var/log/messages).

Root is still able to mount them. :)

As these are removable devices, they are not set up in fstab (for ordinary users to be able to mount) or anything, and I have always depended on the magic that goes on underneath the hood in plasma to mount them.

Then the problem is the relevant part of panel.
