Yeah, one would certainly think so.  But no, it isn't that simple.  

I have changed the permissions manually on both the /dev/RottenKey1 and the 
media/JAMES_KEY entry to match what I have set in the 10-udev.rule.

   chmod james:usb /dev/RottenKey1
   chmod james:usb /media/JAMES_KEY
   KERNEL="sd[a-z][0-9]*", NAME="RottenKey%n", OWNER="james", GROUP="usb",

So now WHERE is it getting the idea that the owner is "root" and the group is 

No, I suspect that I am trying to GEEK this solution together when I should be 
USERING it.  This is, after all, a KDE automounting solution.  Maybe there is 
a configuration switch in a user-friendly menu somewhere?

I dunno.  Grrr... it is too user-friendly!   And I'm not a user!  I'm a 
TECH! ;-)
