Glad to help, even if I'm not quite sure how I steered things in the
right way.  ;-)  It was one of those "in the back of my mind" ideas.

Gnome (or Gnome-based) things, will put temporary auto-mounting
things (flash drives, etc) inside of /var/run/, then give you an
apparently separate mount point.  You'll get a desktop icon for it, and
no immediate indication that it's accessed through /var/run.

I'm not sure if the same applies to KDE.
