Maybe I looking wrong, but thunar_vfs_volume_hal_is_ejectable() return
TRUE also for
( is_volume && is_removable ).
And it have all presented media.

OK, forget for this card_reader. It was for completness about "eject
or unmount" problem.
I thought to say about situations where both, Eject and Unmount, is needed.
This need someone who know better english than me.

Important is "Eject" for external HDD (or SDcard) which don't work
with eject, only with unmount. Don't work with eject just because
there is nothing to eject.
