Live: No persistent storage on Mac

I created an ext2 filesystem on a USB system, labelled it casper-rw and booted with the USB stick in.
/var/log/udev shows that the partition is identified, but it doesn't seem to ever get mounted. Files saved e.g on the Desktop do not persist.
I also created an ext3 filesystem on the local disk, in case it was simply a problem with the USB stick. This also did not work.
This is significant, because the standard method of making a bootable USB stick with some persistent storage does not work on Mac (for reasons that I don't understand). I.e. the only way it seems to have persistent storage with a live image is by having a live CD and and an additional USB stick.
