This means that I have to open a Thunar window (or minimize all 
applications) and right click -> unmount the device before unplugging my 
device, and if I don't do it that way, I will never get any feedback on 
my own failing...

It would be very nice to have an easy accessible systemtray icon for 
these actions if there are any removable devices plugged in... (also for 
the less experienced Xfce user who doesn't have (and should need) any 
knowledge about disk buffers/unmount before unplug/etc)

Does anybody know how this is handled in other envoronments (Windows 
resembles my feature request; I don't know about KDE/Gnome/etc)
