To me this happened in Precise Pangolin up-to-date in Vmware fusion on my macbook.

To fix this I actually need the full error message, which is unfortunately not part of the stack trace. If you are able to reproduce this crash, please open a terminal, run

  sudo /usr/lib/udisks/udisks-daemon --replace 2>&1 | tee /tmp/udisks.log

and then add/remove/whatever your USB stick or other devices until it crashes with something like "Failed to send polled devices: ...". Once it does, please describe which particular action you did and attach /tmp/udisks.log here.

That being said, udisks is not actually supposed to poll any more in the first place, this should be done by the kernel these days. Adding an udev task to fix the polling.

This bug was fixed in the package udev - 175-0ubuntu7

udev (175-0ubuntu7) precise; urgency=low

  * builtin-block-polling.patch: Fix default attribute comparison for CD
    drives, the default value of events_poll_msecs is -1, not 0. This really
    makes in-kernel polling work for those.
  * builtin-block-polling.patch: Apply to all drives with removable media, not
    just CD drives. (LP: #948663)
  * 00git-keymaps.patch: Update to the latest keymaps from upstream:
    - Dell XPS (LP: #910911)
    - HP Presario CQ60 (LP: #935804)
  * debian/rules: Drop prep and tarball targets. We want to use the upstream
    released tarballs.
  * debian/rules: Use dh_autoreconf. Add build dependency.
