Re: "Safely Remove Drive" command gone in F17?

This is not the issue that I am reporting. The problem is not that
the drive is taking too long to unmount -- "mount" shows that it has
been unmounted, the "Unmount" menu item changes to "Mount", and
"sync" returns basically immediately -- but rather that (a) there is
no indication in nautilus that the drive has been successfully
unmounted, because its icon and label don't change, (b) the LED
stays on, which means that the drive itself isn't telling me that it
has been successfully unmounted, unlike on Windows where the LED
turns off as expected, and (c) there is no "Safely Remove" command,
so I have no idea whether "Unmount", "Eject", or some combination of
the two is what I need to do to safely remove the device.
There is a reason why it's called "Safely Remove" on Windows. That
terminology means something to users. "Unmount" and "Eject" do not,
at least not for an USB drive ("Eject" at least means something for
a CD/DVD drive).
