Bug description:
  In Ubuntu 12.04, I could right-click on my usb-external-harddrive's
  Unity-Task-Bar icon (launcher icon) and select "Safely Remove". Upon
  doing this, the icon would disappear and I would proceed in unplugging
  my external hard drive.

  However, since upgrading to Ubuntu 12.10, this option is no longer
  available in the context menus (Quicklists) for external drives.

  Instead, all I see is "Unmount", and after clicking "Unmount" the icon
  remains on the task-bar (launcher) and no indication is given that
  would imply that the unmount occurred successfully.

  The intent of this report is to bring back the "Safely Remove" option
  which (by making the icon disappear after selected) indicates that you
  may now safely removal your USB external hard drive (by unplugging its
  usb connector).
