udev should never, ever mount stuff itself. This is dangerous and explicitly not supported. Consider using systemd, udisks or another daemon for this purpose. For more info about this, see the recent discussion on the linux-hotplug mailinglist.
Are you referencing the 30 second timeout that Sanders link pointed to?
It su's to a normal user and runs a script which uses sudo and only applies to usb ports. I'm fairly sure but not certain that that wouldn't hold up udev? Interestingly I can't imagine a device taking 30 seconds to mount. Atleast if it was a usb I'd pull it out and try again after 15 seconds.
