Package: thunar
Version: 0.9.0-10
Severity: normal

some removable media cannot be unmounted from Thunar. Option "Unmount"
is missing, there is only option "Eject".
But for some removable media, like external HDD or non-USB card reader, it
is wrong (it ends with error message "An unknown error occured" without
unmount), for some removable media, like PNA Tomtom or cellphone
SonyEricsson os possible both, Unmount and Eject, but only after Eject
is device restarting to "normal" state, for some removable media like
USB flashdiscs it do almost same action and on some media like USB card
readers probably should be Eject for whole card reader and Unmount only
for inserted card.

lshal from some removable medias (in Thunar have only "Eject" option now).
Because it is big, I put here only links for them:

As temporary workaround, I removed whole part "/* append the "Unmount Volume"
menu item */" (in thunar-shortcuts-view.c and thunar-tree-view.c) from "else"
statement and put it them directly to show this menuitem for every removable media.
