Just installed Thunar on my spare machine,and got the same problem initially.
To get Thunar to auto-mount a usb flash drive I also needed gdm(or one of it's dependencies) and thunar-volman.
This is as well as gvfs and udisks.
I'm using Testing Amd64 on this machine.
Thanks, trooper. Unfortunately still my x86 penguins are not healthy with the packages you mention.
On console, udisks works!!!
I guess it is policykit related, so I checked with "pkaction -v", however I have not found solution yet.
Strange it works for both of us on x86_64.
Just out of curiosity have you tried any other file managers?.
If you find the answer please post back,as I'd be interested to hear the cure for this.
Sorry I can't offer any more help.
It is related to the graphical session initialisation. The consolekit guys changed something there, gdm and kdm got updated and the rest did not. Xdm and Slim works with if you mess around in the policykit permissions files (which will be changed back on update).
The xdm guys dont seem to realize that most DEs use consolekit/policykit (there is a patch for this that wasnt accepted afaik).
