F15: encrypted USB stick has wrong mount permissions

I've created an encrypted USB stick as follows:

# dd if=/dev/urandom of=/dev/sdb1
# cryptsetup luksFormat /dev/sdb1
# cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/sdb1 luks-usb
# mkfs -t ext4 -L Kingston8GB /dev/mapper/luks-usb
# cryptsetup luksClose /dev/mapper/luks-usb

Now I remove the USB stick, wait a bit and put it back into my laptop 
with F15. I am asked for the passphrase and the USB stick opens in 
Nautilus. The only problem is that the owner of /media/Kingston8GB is 
root.root and the permissions on the mounted USB stick are 755 (or 

I don't see this problem when using a regular unencrypted USB stick.

Anyone know how I can solve the permission problem?
