I thought that might be the case, but seems like the needs to change
to meet the "secure by default" goals.

I doubt an administrator plugging his usb memory key into a system
wants everyone on the campus to have access to it right away.

Since you know about this change, can you tell me what part of hald is
responsible for setting the permissions this way? If you have to dig
for it, nevermind, I'll find it myself, just asking if you knew "off
the top of your head."
