Bug description:
Binary package hint: sugar-journal-activity

It appears that there is a hard coded UID for mounting USB flash drives.

In /usr/share/activities/Journal.activity/volumesmanager.py

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.
