PCManFM and Removable Devices

i noticed that also (12.04) but only when it was not possible to umount
the device, then my pcmanfm was closing (i guess crashing).

My MP3-Player is showing the text "data transfer". When i choose the
remove-icon on pcmanfm the text "data transfer" was flashing and pcmanfm
was crashing.

Kind regards
