I've been using the mount applet too, since its the easiest way to access all my mounts.
I see a balloon when I unplug my pendrives.
Actually I see 2 balloons... one for half a second telling me that data is still being write to disk (even if nothing has been written in hours) and just after that a new balloon telling me I can remove the device.
I guess there's some test that runs, shows the 1st balloon, and only then ejects the pen.

ps. My emails tend to sound authority and aggressive. I'm sorry in advance. I'll try to be more assertive as time goes by...
