I have a directory named /media/joe, with joe:joe 750 permissions. I'm
reasonably sure that systemd originally created that, but if you have
an appropriate directory which was created with different permissions,
that may be a problem.

If I plug in an arbitrary extN or FAT USB stick, it is automounted
under /media/joe, and I have write permissions (as long as the extN
location does). I don't have any that are formatted NTFS, so I don't
know how permissions might map.

This is unstable, by the way, Wheezy has an incomplete version of
systemd and may well be using usbmount or pmount for automounting.
I think anything later than Wheezy ought to have systemd handling
