I doubt it, hid = human interface device.  For you, that's spelled
"Wacom", as you can see from the output of lsmod.  Of course, if
there's a bug, anything can happen, and your gf's host doesn't seem to

You might try looking in the daemon.log, syslog, and/or messages (if

devices matching sd[a-z][1-9][0-9]* (your regexp or glob may be
different; I'm looking for a callback to mount or a script that does
the mount).
