Sorry I have to chip in at this point.  IMHO *many* home computers are multi-
user systems.  I have 4 kids at home and not all of them have their own 
computer (why should they?) - but they all have their own account on our 
shared home computer.  And at any one time 2-3 of them are logged in.  Not 
actively using it but logged in.

Currently this computer runs ubuntu and mounting of removable media is a 
significant problem.  Most of the time it just doesn't work - crashing and 
burning in a tangle of permissions issues.

Please don't ignore this use case.
