Question /dev entries changing their owner and permissions

Hello! I have a problem with my /dev entries.
My linux is Gentoo 2005.0, so /dev is managed via udev. The udev permission are are ok but when i log in with a user some of /dev entries owner and permission are changeing, the owner becoming the user with wich i had logged in and permission are changed from 660 to 600. This behaviour is't fit for my configuration, because i migth have 2 users logged in at the same time, so one of them could not access the devices properly. I think that the program generating this behaviour is DBUS wich is let say indispensable for my system, but i don't know.
First i'd like to know what is the program which does this, and second i'd like to know how to stop this behaviour.

Thank you and sorry for my english.

You need to use Google to find documentation on how to configure udev rules

The udev rules and permissions are ok. The scheme configured there is the one i'd like to use for my system. The problem is that the /dev entries are changeing their owner and permission each time a user logs in.
