 This is what my #7638 (prematurely closed by someone) was about.  In that
 case, I've now come to the conclusion that it was "opeator error" - I had
 failed to change the "working directory" in a Terminal session, such that
 it was still 'using' the removable device.  That kept the 'umount' from

 There is still the bug in Journal - it should not remove the device icon
 if the 'umount' cannot be performed.

 [A suggestion for your users - do a 'df' from Terminal.  If it still shows
 the device, issue the 'umount' manually.]
