Flushing Cache notification too verbose

Bug Description

When I eject a usb key and it's still writing I get this notification:

"There is data that needs to be written to the device %s before it can be
removed. Please do not remove the media or disconnect the drive."

This text seems too long for a notification, I barely could read it all. I
might be a slow reader. ;)

What's a good message to use here?

gnome-disk-utility is used instead of gnome-mount in karmic, unsubscribing the sponsors now it's not worth apply this change and breaking translations if the package goes to universe and it not used by GNOME
