Yes, I had the same problem...but didn't know what it was...and 
unfortunately it was in the middle of a demo =)
*blink* next time I'm starting with the unit off...or will reset it if 
someone arrives... =)
the odd this is that a 'relog' of the user did not help...the entire 
unit had to reboot (correct for you too) ?
Could/should not this be handled bu 'umount' upon removal of the device 
or does one need to create a script and add
a launcher to manually make it run /after/before/  extraction of a USB 
drive device?
