How many slots do you have on your card reading usb device?

You should have one disk icon for each of them.
Unmounting one stops the card reader and unmount the other slots.

I had this behavior on all my Ubuntu distro.
I swapped to Linux Mint Sarah and this behavior disappeared : only one icon.
This may be a fix.

Have a nice day.
