Description Leonard Evens 2005-03-16 11:19:25 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050224 Firefox/1.0.1 Fedora/1.0.1-1.3.1

Description of problem:
I put my compact flash card reader in a USB port and put a memory card from my digital camera in it.  An icon comes up, and I have no trouble copying files from it.  But when I try to umount it, I can't do it.  lsof shows that gam_server is using it.  If I kill the gam_server processes, more come up.  The only way I've managed to umount it is to kill the gam_server process and on the same  command line after a ';' do a umount.

I previously had a similar problem with a floppy disk, but in that case there was a .trash folder on the disk and removing it resolved the problem.  I checked, and this time there were no trash folders anywhere that I could find.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Put in card reader
2. Try to umount it
3. run lsof on directory /media/LEXAR_MEDIA

Actual Results:  2.  shows filesystem busy

Expected Results:  should have umounted.
