Description mvera 2008-12-02 17:11:00 UTC
I opened odt documents, modified and saved them on my usb key. I closed all
writers but when I wanted to eject my usb key the system refused.

I searched which processus was holding a lock on my key, I killed soffice.bin
and then I could remove my key.

This is really annoying and a basic user won't be able to deal with this problem.

Note : I opened documents with the application in Windows
Applications menu, I opened .doc documents and saved them as .odt 1.1 and 1.2
