Are the /dev/ttyUSB* devices owned by your userid, or are they owned
by root:uucp?

If they're not owned by you, then try applying the following patch:

I think logging out and back in is sufficient for the changes to take
effect, but if the /dev/ttyUSB* devices are still owned by root:uucp
when you log back in, then just reboot.

Honestly, I'm not sure why this isn't the default...
