Yes, exactly (I didn't know correct name of this dialog because of 
localization). It seems that my system ignores settings set there, but 
also it seems that Thunar uses different machinery to mount/unmount 
removable devices so I can view my camera/flash cards but, for example, 
file manager would not start automatically.

If you tell me what service is in charge of running actions associated 
with removable devices, I will try to run it from command line with 
debug output enabled.
