I found this posting:

when you get a ``detach'' event from hotplug it's
always too late, media has
already disappeared, and our vfs layer can't do forced
unmounting for now.


It's a bit dated (2005-02-25 5:27:59)... I was just
wondering
if any progress had been on this front.  I cannot seem
to 
get a USB flash drive to be forcibly unmount if it is
pulled
out by accident.
Just $16.99/mo. or less.
