[Edgy] Data is transmitted to USB drives only on unmounting

Bug #82887 reported by Kyromaster on 2007-02-02
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
linux-source-2.6.17 (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

When I transmit data to an USB stick or USB harddrive the data is wriiten only when I unmount it.
This is IMHO not very good, the data should be written instantly to the stick, like e.g. Windows does it. Not only is this good when the user unplugs the stick without unmounting, but also to see how long the writing will need (the writing speed seems to be enormously fast, but when I unmount the stick or shutdown the system I've to wait very long).
