Your last hal log was more interesting, it seems the probe-volume takes too much time, see:

[8693]: 21:52:03.713 [E] probe-volume.c:351: Timed out probing /dev/scd0 - broken device driver?

There is a 10s timeout, on probe-volume.

If you are able to automount when starting hal, it's maybe because the timeout is longer for the coldplug detection at startup.

The probe-volume seems to be stucked in the volume_id_probe_all function, this function is also used by vol_id.

Could you do:
    vol_id /dev/scd0

Does it take a lot of time ?
