fuse and udev

Hi all,

I currently have a file in /etc/udev/rules.d called 40-fuse.rules which contains:

KERNEL="fuse", NAME="%k", MODE="0666"

However, the /dev/fuse node that udev creates is 660 instead. I use ntfs-3g to access my windows partitions, so this is preventing me from mounting anything that uses fuse.

I have also grepped *.rules in /etc/udev/rules.d for 'fuse', and 40-fuse.rules is the only file with a udev rule for fuse.

Does anyone know why that rule is being overrided?

Thanks in advance,
