Argh, that's annoying. Thanks for the information. O well, first I
setuid'ed hdparm to make it work as a user, then I reverted that back as I
started it in /etc/init.d/local, and now I'm again setuid'ing it so I can
set the settings from /etc/conf.d/hdparm in ~/.kde4/Autostart/.

I filed a bug: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=248905
You might want to vote for it so it gets some attention and will hopefully
be fixed soon.

Thanks*Wonko,

As reported on https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=334393 the workaround of:

touch /etc/pm/power.d/harddrive

stops KDE4.4.4/5 from messing up the existing hdparm settings (at
least as far as acoustic management is concerned). At least now I
don't have to listen this Seagate sata rattling all day! :-)
