KDE mounts USB drive with wrong user


I currently have a set up on my home PC where I log in (as domi) on
the main kdm screen.

Then, I open a VNC server for my wife. She will log also as a KDE user
within the VNC server.

When she inserts a USB drive, KDE will offer in the VNC session to
mount the drive. So she choose (within her account) to mount the drive.

Problem is that KDE will mount the drive and set the owner as domi
(i.e. the user logeed in the kdm session) so my wife will not be able
to write a file on the USB drive.

Is there a way to avoid this problem ? 

Shouldn't KDE mount the USB drive using the id of the user who
*actually* requested the mount ?


PS: I can't work my way around this ownership problem, but it's much
harder for my wife.
