Using (on Fedora 9):
My HP 6500 laptop's recovery partition is no longer ignored by hal, and its mounted when I log in. Looking at the exceptions in 20-storage-methods.fdi there is a rule:
<!-- HP ships desktops with a recovery partition -->
<match key="volume.fstype" string="vfat">
<match key="volume.label" string="HP_RECOVERY">
<merge key="volume.ignore" type="bool">true</merge>
However, this doesn't match for me because the recovery partition is NTFS. I'm not sure why anything is checking the fstype, but I've attached a patch to look for either.
The hard drive got replaced by HP (under warranty) and it broke then. I don't have the old drive to compare against.

unify set volume.ignore for recovery partitions
Unifyed handling/matching of recovery partitions to set volume.ignore
to true. This should also fix fd.o#18027.
