Re: Unsafe storage device unmounting

Have you disabled dbus notifications? The point at which the icon
disappears is not the point at which the drive is safe to remove. DBus
normally raises a notification window "Data is being written to the
device" followed by "Device is now safe to remove".

Mmh, i feel you are near to the problem even if...
No, i've not disabled dbus notification neither i've ever tweaked it.
Moreover "notification-daemon" is installed, i can see notification messages from other apps like Rhythmbox and the trashcan icon change depending on its full/empty status.

From my first mail to debian-gtk-gnome (May 2007), i have never seen any notification after clicking on "Unmount volume". I use unstable since 2005: maybe there are some conffile that was not updated correctly, in particular when the progress bar taken from Ubuntu was removed. By the way, good to know how a good working Gnome environment should behave. :-)

As you asked in another mail, i append the information collected by "reportbug gnome" (quoted to avoid Thunderbird to wrap lines):
