I use "eject -s /dev/ipod" where ipod is a symlink to sda2. eject used to
work reliably, but for some months, it only works once or twice after a
reboot. When it doesn't work, I sometimes try again; then, eject usually
tells me "unable to open /dev/sda2" and after it's told me that once, it
always give the same error.
Now, when eject fails, I just pull the cable after unmounting it and waiting
at least a minute.
I also wait at about a minute after attaching it to the computer before
starting gtkpod (which I've configured to mount and unmount it). When I
wait, it never tells me it can't find its databases.
