Actually, the results of Davide's testing suggests that the odds of corruption are 
way more likely that without it. With the sync option, it takes longer to cleanly 
unmount, hence the user has more time to screw up. The numbers look a bit fishy 

I completely agree that this is not something we should do in KDE, it's kernel stuff. 
Besides that, the hardcoded path is a completely no-go.
