Impossible, at least with Gnome. Known bug, aka feature (SuSE 9.3): it is 
hardcoded. Search the archive of suse-linux-e list around the time when 
SuSE 9.3 came out for disccusions about this.

I deleted it - rather, I renamed it:

  /opt/kde3/bin/DAMMsusewatcher
  /opt/kde3/bin/DAMMsuseplugger

The name reflects my frustration...
