Ahhh...of course. Thanks.
I've had some trouble in the past unmounting drives that were auto-mounted,
but that was with a 2.4 kernel. After unmounting, I wasn't able to mount the
key anymore (kept getting device read errors) and it wouldn't auto-mount
either. Maybe it had something to do with the file system on the key being
unsynced with the main fs...
