confirmed, fuse really needs a start of udev after adding a group, or /dev/fuse ends up with a wrong group

I've confirmed that this really requires restart of udev after fuse install.

I guess this is a situation that might easily happen with other
packages, and we'll end up with a nonworking system until reboot, some
helpful FAQ for developers might be in order.

I think fuse-utils should restart udev in postinst if udev is used.

I'm cc'ing debian-devel to alert more widely of this behavior, I hope
that's okay.
