hello all:
According to http://www.xfce.org/documentation/api/thunar-vfs/ThunarVfsVolume.html#thunar-vfs-volume-is-ejectable
The thunar_vfs_volume_is_ejectable () should return TRUE only if a
medium is present and the volume is removable
Is this mean it reference the hal key: storage.removable = true  ?
I found my usb disk and sd card is treat as "reject" if I want remove them,
but there is a storage.requires_eject = false key  found if I monitor
my usb disk by lshal command

Thus, which hal key is referenced by the thunar-vfs lib to judge if a
volume need to be eject or unmount?
