While I agree that the bug reported with id=200389 is a problem I am 
also experiencing, the problem I reported in this thread, (I think) may 
be a different issue. I can close the apps, Thunderbird and Firefox, 
(via the File -> Close menu) but I cannot dismount the USB drive that 
they were executed from. This is due to the face that open files are 
left behind AFTER these apps have been closed. It appears as if 
sometimes the process started for these apps remains as a deprecated 
process, other times the process does disappear but the files associated 
with the apps remain open to an orphaned process that no longer exists.
