FWIW: I routinely dock and undock my ThinkPad X61. If I do not forget to
unmount ATA drive in the UltraBay, or one of the USB drives, plugged
into the dock, things work rather well. I normally plug my USB mouse
into one of the dock's USB ports -- this does not seem to require any
special handling.

Is it possible that you have something in the dock that does not like
being yanked? I woould recommend starting by comparing output of
'pciconf -l' in both states.

I am tracking RELENG_7 somewhat lazily.

Mine actually does -- it turns off red led and unlocks the laptop.
