[xubuntu-users] Can not unmount a usb pen drive

When I try to unmount a USB pen drive it says: unable to unmount..another application is preventing.... Using Xubuntu 10.10. All I did was copy some stuff over to this drive. This is the type of thing that has to be easy to do and work mindlessly on a desktop...I'm going to power down the laptop and remove the drive...

Here's my processes - what's locking the pen drive please for next time it happens? Also what's dbus? Do I need dbus?

Thanks
