If multiple users are accessing the device, then the expected
behaviour is that it will be mounted as the UID of the first user to
access the disk (unless you have overridden this with a "uid=" option
on the mount command line). That ought to work fine.

Are you running kerneld? There are known bad interactions between
supermount and kerneld under 2.0.27.
