It took us a while to track this one down. There appears to be a bug in
fm. When started, it creates a dir /tmp/.removable/ if it doesn't exist,
or uses the existing one. The problem comes in when it exists, but is
not world writable (which is the default when fm first creates it).
In other words, whoever runs fm first after the machine boots will own
the file, and only their fm will work. We fixed the problem by having
root 'chmod a+rwx /tmp/.removable' after every boot.
