I didn't notice this until after I updated to SuSE 10.0 where the  
"Eject" option was replaced with a "Safely remove" option.   
Basically, there is no need to eject "/media" devices such as memory  
sticks.  Just pull them out when you're done.

I haven't run across this as I'm still using the default version of  
KDE released with SuSE 10.0.
