mount usb with the wrong user

I installed trinity on a PC running Ubuntu Lucid (I did not
do the original installation so I am not sure if something
went wrong)

However when I connect in kde3 an usb device with a linux
partion 2 things happen

    -  the kde daemon pops up twice instead of only once

    -  the device is mounted but  the files belong to
       another user of this PC. This is very annoying
       because in order to copy I have to use sudo and then
       later the chown chgrp command.

I looked up the fstab file in /etc but there I can't see the
source of the problem.
