Description of problem:
gnome-mount --eject does not change display on Palm OS 5.4.8 Drive Mode.
The device is unmounted, but the Palm still displays 'Do not unplug'
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. connect Palm (Tungsten T5, Palm OS 5.4.8)
2. start drive mode
3. gnome-mount --eject --pseudonym INTERNAL
device unmounted but display on Palm still says 'Do not unplug'
device unmounted and Palm to not display 'Do not unplug'
the man page gives me the impression this should work:
It can also be used to eject discs from CD drives and other devices that needs
to be ejected. For example, iPod’s needs this to make the "Do not
disconnect" message go away.
1. please attach output of lshal when the device is plugged in
2. after unmounting the device.. does 'eject /dev/sda' as root make the message

in response to Comment #1
'eject /dev/sda' as root does not make the message go away
gnome-mount --eject just calls eject(1) through HAL. Reassigning to eject and
fixing up Summary.
OK, just got hold of a Windows box and tried it there.
Seems we can not get this to work as even on what Palm dubs supported platform the display of the Palm
does not change on eject.
Sorry about the bug
