Looking at the GIT repo:
It looks like the latest release also contains this code/bug.
Given that 'whoami' and 'is it my USB key' becomes a lot more
complicated with a multiuser/multiseat is it worth considering
as a possible solution?
ConsoleKit is already in Ubuntu, and I believe it is liked by the Fedora crowd.

It appears that there is a hard coded UID for mounting USB flash drives.
MOUNT_OPTION_UID = 500
This should use the UID of the actual user on the system who is running Sugar. Note: there may be more than one user active in a multiseat/thin client system.
