[Bug 32643] unmounting of removable drives should show a progress dialog

Public bug report changed:

Don't mean to be a picky bastard, but the phrasing in the dialog box is
pretty inconsistent.

 o Window title is "Removing device". I got the dialog by selecting
"Unmount" or "Eject", why is something being "Removed"?

 o The bold text, "Writing data to storage device <device label>" is
much more indicative of what is actually happening (if a bit wordy).

Might I suggest something like the following:

 o Window title: "Saving changes"
 o Bold caption: "Saving changes to files on <device label>"
 o Warning: "Please do not remove the device until this operation is complete."

I think this might be a bit more clear.
