Oh, this is interesting. Can you clarify "if so"? It sounds like you're 
saying a DVD would get unmounted but a data disk would be left mounted. 
But I'd kinda expect it to unmount everything it had mounted. What could 
cause the unmount to fail? Can I get MythTV to log what it's trying to 
do? Cheers-
