USB stick slow to mount

Ever since kernel 2.6.6 (currently using 2.6.9) I have been having some slow mount times (takes about 20 seconds to mount my USB stick). I have tried both devfs and udev but both yield the same results. Currently I am using udev (hence the /dev/stick).

USB media support is compiled into the kernel, as well as all necessary USB bus support (V1's - V2).

My fstab entry:

/dev/stick             /mnt/usbstick  vfat      rw,users,noauto,noexec 0      0

demesg output:

[root@intel2500 jjohnson]# dmesg
>usb-storage: usb_stor_bulk_transfer_buf: xfer 13 bytes

usb-storage: usb_stor_bulk_transfer_buf: xfer 31 bytes
usb-storage: Status code 0; transferred 31/31
usb-storage: -- transfer complete

Strangely, the last eight lines 'loop' or repeat themselves over and over (too long to post obviously). I think this might have something to do with the slowness however I have no idea what it means. Once it is mounted, the device operates at speeds comparable to Windoze.

Thanks for any help.
