"safe to remove" notice shows up before drive is ready to be removed

Bug Description

Binary package hint: nautilus

i suspect this is because this message is shown after a sync, but if you remove it before you see it actually disappear in the list of volumes in nautilus you get various errors about not being able to send scsi sync/flush commands

steps to reproduce:
1) plug in drive
2) sync before eject, or leave it idle so theres nothing to write (not required but helps)
3) eject, pull when dialogue says its' ok and before it disappears in nautilus

expected: volume already be synced and gone before that dialogue appears
actually happened: unplugging the drive will make the "safe to remove" notice disappear, but a few seconds later you get an error box talking about scsi "sense" failures and trying to flush the drive cache

i didn't take a screenshot last time, but i'll try to remember to take one

Thank you for your bug report, it seems weird that ejecting the drive would make the dialog be displayed

The bug is old and Ubuntu changed quite a lot since, there has also been no activity here nor similar reports. Closing since we believe the issue as described is deprecated but feel free to file a new report if you still have problems in recent Ubuntu versions.
