Description of problem:
If you click on a mounted floppy's icon and choose "format", gfloppy
is unable to format to format the floppy. You have to unmount the
floppy and, then, launch gfloppy to have it work. So I think gfloppy
should simply unmount the floppy before trying to format it.

3.Choose "format"

Additional info:

If you unmount the floppy before trying to format it, it works.
