I have a number of HP T5000 Linux Thin Clients, but cannot see USB memory sticks in an ICA session.
The same USB stick is visible in an ICA session from a PC.
'Connect Client Drives' is checked in AD.
'Use connection settings from user settings' is checked in TSCCon all servers.
In the Thin Client Settings (Settings>HP Desktop Options>USB Storage), 'Enable USB storage' is checked.
The USB device is visible in UNIX (ls /mnt/usb1)

YOU have to enable usb using a citrix policy, I think it is in the PDA section:

Unfortunately configuring the 'Turn on virtual COM port mapping' in Citrix policy did not help. And the interesting article seems to refer to clients, not thin clients.

The problem seems to me that Windows/Citrix is unable to see the local (USB) devices in Linux.

I was afraid of that, I have not tested that setting using a thin client device so I was not sure if it would work.  It very well could be that citrix does not support usb from that device.  Citrix pretty much tells you on their website to consult the vendor of the thin client device if you experience any issues.  

Sorry I couldn't be more help.

Actually I have solved the problem myself.
In HP Connection Administrator select:
Advanced>Citrix Global Settings>Drive Mappings
Select an appropriate drive letter
Check the 'enable', 'read' and 'write' boxes
In the path field fill in "/mnt/usb1/" (without the quotes)

I was the originator of the question - new member & my first - but somehow I seem to have posted the solution as someone else, so I have to judge my own solution to close this question. It seems a bit egotistical to grade it as excellent, though perhaps it is also logical...
