I've wondered too why it's not there - seems absurd. Automounting but no 
gui way to unmount. And now it's bitten me in the butt.

I've just checked Dapper updated to this moment - and right-clicking 
under places gives a 'remove' option (and something else), which is of 
course blanked out for the usb drive.
