Bug Description

The widget that monitors connected midias on Jaunty stops answering if you try to remove a media that is actually in use.

Steps to reproduce:
- Insert a media in the computer (in my case it was a SD card)
- Open a Konsole windows and cd into the dir of the media (/media/sdcard, for example)
- Try to umount the media clicking on the arrow of the "Connected devices" widget.

You should now have the widget screen locked on the screen.

Using the terminal you can cd off the media dir and unmount it without any hicupps.

The applet should be smart enough to see that the device is busy and display a message to the user. As is the case with dolphin (althou dolphin's message is a little hidden).
