You might be right, but the patch i supplied would diminish the effects of the 
bug.
I know this is a 'dirty hack', but it's also not nice pulling out a device 
while it's still mounted. To diminish the bad effects of such a 
behaviour, /etc/dev.d/block/hal-unmount.dev is provided. So why not patch it, 
to diminish the bad effects of another dirty behaviour (in this case not the 
behaviour of a person, but of the kernel), too?

Please reconsider applying the patch
Regards
Roman
