James, I am running Mandriva Club 2005LE with kernel 2.6.11-12.  I'm not 
sure whether it was the kernel update, or the fact that the Club 
edition had a later version of hal and/or udev, but at that point it 
began to work as you want.  I have kde set to display an icon for a 
mounted removable device but not an unmounted one.  A right-click on 
the desktop icon gives me a 'safely remove' message, and the icon 
disappears.  The device is unmounted and can be removed.

I think maybe your problem will disappear with a version update.  HTH
