it actually gets already removed after opening the device, not closing.
My observation was wrong. I've pasted `udevmonitor /dev/ttyUSB0` to
http://rafb.net/p/CY7p2S91.html and sample code at
http://rafb.net/p/OmEu0t95.html in hope it might be of use. When
sleep(...) hit, the device file was already away. After a
ftdi_usb_find_all(...) it is still there.

As you suggested, I used PolicyKit to provide direct access to serial
modems. Here is my `polkit-auth --user` output:
http://rafb.net/p/3dtITs74.html .

"org.freedesktop.hal.device-access.modem" is now listed in the output.

I tried defining explicitly my user and played with global access
options, replugged the device and rebooted. The result is unfortunately
still the same: inappropriate permissions on device.
