Ubuntu's changelog says:
- If any umount fails, sleep for five seconds and try again, up to three
times; it seems that occasionally desktop automounting systems grab
the device at just the wrong time.

Colin made it, maybe he can explains this.
I think the break should be a `return 0' and at the end of the function
a `return 1' so that this would make sense.
