Something other than ivman automounting my drives

Even with ivmount killed, my external devices are auto-mounted ( under the names of disk, disk-1, disk-2 etc in /media ). This would be fine, however I always have to re-mount the drives as by default they are autmounted as read-only no matter their filesystem.

Could I have another daemon automounting my drives, and if so, how do I identify it?

I do not have the gnome-desktop environment installed, but instead run Fluxbox with Rox pinboard and filer. I hated having to manually mount drives from the command line, so I installed a certain package ( which I forgotten the name of ) which is probably culprit. Now I know how to setup pmount, ivman and rox-pinboard to work together, but first I have to fix my current problem.

EDIT: Debian Squeeze AMD64

Regards, William

Udev populates the /dev directory with devices, but AFAIK it does not mount anything.

EDIT: Removed lines from /det/udev/usbmount.rules and no more automounting! Thankyou
