Looking at the code, the popup is shown when an error arrises in
standard view (the "error" callback is setup to the function displaying
the popup). It might be some kind of race condition but I'm not sure
between who and who. It might be worth killing tumblerd and gvfs
processes before ejecting, in case it's related.
