I normally find that it's flash-related, so look for something like

Yep, that's the trick for me as well.

NB, it just "locks" it, not using it, so lsof won't list anything.

What is 'npviewer'?

I do not seem to have it on my system and I can not determine what package it is in.

mns@xander:~$ dpkg -S npviewer
dpkg: *npviewer* not found.

Are there other processes that could lock the device in a similar fashion that I could be looking for. I could set up a batch file to look for and display potential culprits, but I need to know what they are, first.
