[Bug 792085] Re: Automatic remount of safely removed drive


This happens for me with a Transcend USB3.0 1TB drive. (I checked, and
it has the latest firmware, too.) I agree with Romano Giannetti that
this should be marked Critical - I can still unmount my main btrfs
partition first, which should sync any writes to the disk, but I really
don't know how bad it is for the drive's health to then just yank the
drive out.

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: nautilus

  When I choose "Safely remove drive" context menu entry for an external
  USB drive within a nautilus window or directly clicking on the desktop
  icon, after about 10 seconds the drive is automatically remounted and
  a Nautilus window showing the root folder opens.

  I have noticed that similar already happened with a very old Ubuntu
  version - Bug #110589 and as that is so long time ago I thought it is
  better to open a new bug. Reason of the problem might even be
  completely different.
