So, just tested in Mint 18 Cinnamon edition. This bug is still there. How on earth has this not been fixed THREE YEARS later!?
It's not a big deal for me. I almost never use USB sticks other than to install new operating systems, but for more casual users, this could be a huge issue.

[b]sudo chmod 777 /media/USERNAME
This is certainly a workaround, but a fix it is not. Doing this means that all users on the local machine can read/write/execute any file on any media you mount automatically in the GUI, which is generally not a good idea. (That being said, I feel like this is what Windows does as well...)
So, why on earth has this not been fixed yet?
It's not a big deal for a user like myself, but I feel like my recommendations to friends and family to use Cinnamon may now become problematic...
Something like this SHOULD just work.
