Bug Description

Unmounting a busy device in Unity doesn't have any user feedback and the device just stays in Launcher.

Compare the following behaviour:
1. Insert a USB stick
2. Make it "busy" by running something like "cd /media/EDFD-4E6E/" in a terminal.
3. From the desktop - right-click it and select "Safely remove"
4. A dialog pops up, telling the device is busy.

In Unity:
1. Repeat steps 1 and 2 above.
2. Right click the USB stick in Launcher and select "Eject".
3. Nothing happens and the stick stays in Launcher unmounted.
