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):
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.
This is fixed in 0.0.25 or 0.0.26 verions of gamin,
