Automounting usb freezes gnome shell

I've just tried connecting my stills picture camera to Fedora 17. When I switch it on, Gnome shell stops responding.

The mouse cursor still moves, but Activities doesn't respond with a click or a press on the activities key.

If I Alt-F1 to a console, the camera is mounted as a USB and is fine for accessing on the command line.

Trying to return to the GUI is a dead-loss as the screen doesn't repaint.

I installed KDE and that doesn't have the problem - the drive mounts fine and is accessible in Dolphin.

Is anyone else having something similar to this?

I must admit, I came here from Ubuntu as the latest Long Term Release didn't automount my pendrive. Is there a problem with USB support? I can't find anything definitive on it. Someone suggested that their usb 1.1 was the problem, but surely not?

Any pointers gratefully received.
