A mate of mine has a problem: his "disk" wanders. First time it's sda,
then sdb etc. You might check for that:
for d in a b c d e f g h i j k; do fdisk -l /dev/sd{d};done

Use eject /dev/sda when done to fix this.

Hm. I'd reckon he knows enough to umount it: _I_ don't eject, and _I_ don't have the problem.

I will put the Q  to him, but I am sceptical.
