automount of a volume has wrong permissions, can't open files

I have files on an HFS+ volume that were created on OS X. When I'm in
Fedora 22, applications give me permissions errors when trying to open
them. I have to go to the CLI to fix this, there's no way to do it in
the GUI. Obviously this shouldn't happen, so it's a bug.

But, I can't figure out which component's bug. What actually
instigates automount in GNOME, and does it tell udisks2 what
permissions to use when automounting? That determines if it's some
GNOME component or if it's udisks2 or maybe something else.
