External hard drives don't eject properly

Postby kuckunniwi » Mon Dec 17, 2012 2:36 am

Mint 13 XFCE 64-bit
External hard drives don't eject properly from file manager or desktop>eject.

No problem with usb flash drive.

Problem has proven true with different hard drives, and on two different computers.

Ejecting from disk utility or terminal does work.

IIRC I have seen this in other distro with xfce
So it may be an upstream issue

Has anyone found a workaround? As mentioned, I can unmount/eject using terminal or diskutility, but it's rather annoying to have to do so every time...
