[K12OSN] local USB, CD on client

I have a similar problem in beta 6, and it is consistent that the first 
session logged in at a station will get the USB Key, but after that user 
logs out, nobody can get it, including the first user. On terminal 
reboot, it's available again.

I occasionally have a problem with the first time I plug in the key on a 
terminal- it won't find it and make the desktop icon. After I wait a 
minute, I unplug and replug, and it works.

In general terms, though the usb keys work very well. I'd like to mount 
terminal hard drives, too.
