Once in a while you get such errors in Mandriva. But it also shows the
process due to which this happens. Just kill the process and you can
unmount, eject safely.

Actually, it does not really matter even if it is not unmounted /
ejected properly. You can just do a sync before trying unmount. I have
never faced any problems on my Mandriva systems even if I unplug it
just like that without any unmount or safely remove or any other
tools/utilities.
