Live USB creator

This has been fixed in newer versions of usb-creator. What version are you 
running and what version of Kubuntu?

The issue was with the back-end process intentionally not releasing the device 
(it was a design decision at the time, which has since been changed).

If you simply wish to unmount using the old version, open a konsole after usb-
creator has finished and issue the unmount command specifying the device for 
the media used. Preferably, try using a newer version of usb-creator.
