Unison and USB

I was having some problems getting my trusty USB key and unison (the file sync software) to play together. It turns out that because my USB key is formatted as vFAT (or FAT32) to allow it to work on my Ubuntu box and Windoze machines (at work), I need to ensure that Unison doesn't try to mirror the permissions.

unison usb -perms=0
where usb refers to the file: /home/username/.unison/usb.prf
