FileSystem unmount failure : lock on file due to file transfer

Hello all,

I have transfered a file stored on a usb key. This was successful \o/

But ... when I tried unmounting the key, the system (linux in my case)
refused because of a lock on this file, even after transfert completion oO

I had to quit pidgin to complete unmounting... a bad solution...

I am sure others have tacked this, so defect++...
