If I mount my multisession DVD with MUT (or probably anything; I only use MUT) and then forget to unmount it before I save a session, the computer freezes up. The only way to unfreeze it is a hard reboot. I've done this several times. Embarassed Fortunately the session was saved so no real harm done.

That's an annoying bug!
I never discovered it, because I am very disciplined to always unmount a
partition immediately after use.
Okay, I've written it into my notebook, an official v2.00 bug.

... if you happen to have a sfs squashfile connected.

I ended up doing something like:

Code:

for i in `mount | grep loop | grep -v loop0 | sed 's|/.u|u|'; do
squash --unload $i.sfs
done && umount /dev/cdrom


in my rc.reboot.local, but it would be handy to have it as part of the system reboot script. umount may not be able to get rid of the mount if there are apps open looking at it, but at least it would be handy to find this out before you're part-way through the session update process.[/code]
