[Bug 1507183] Re: "safely remove" remounts after a couple of seconds


I deleted /var/log/syslog, plugged in the drive (Transcend), it mounted
and nautilus opened, then selected the "safely remove" menu item on its
icon in the ribbon,  icon vanished etc, than few seconds later it
reappeared and nautilus opened again.

There was nothing written to the /var/log/syslog file.

That file does re-appear after a reboot, and has quite a lot of detail
in it, do you really need it? I'd like to confirm what it leaks before
handing it over.

Kind regards

  Selecting 'Safely remove' on a USB drive shoudl than required it to be
  re-plugged in to be freshly detected and mounted.

  I'm seeing this only temporally remove the drive and within a few
  seconds the device is re-mounted.
