Description of problem:
I'm using rhel 6 beta++. I have a 500GB external hard drive I had plugged in to my rhel 6 laptop. I tried to unmount it ('safely remove device' is the option I used) and I got the following error:
"Unable to stop drive: Error detaching: helper exited with code 1: Incorrect usage"
It sees like it unmounted the device anyway though. I plugged it out and it seemed fine. I have mounted and ejected the drive at least two times successfully since I got the error, but I thought the bug might be worth filing anyway.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Not very. It hasn't happened since.

Works fine here with a USB stick. This would be hard to debug, any chance to grab a 'ps axlf' output when the error appears? (most probably the failing process will be gone already)
