hdiutil could require the user's GUI session to try and mount the disk  
image after it's created.  Where is the launchd plist stored, /Library/ 
LaunchAgents or ~/Library/LaunchAgents?

Try moving the plist into the user's ~/Library/LaunchAgents to have  
launchd run it in the GUI session.  Set auto-login, reboot the  
machine, and see if that helps.
