You may want to double check that all of your CTRL-ALT+Fx virtual consoles,
screen sessions, and Konqueror windows do not have a folder open on the
external usb drive.  For instance, could you have forgotten that in the
CTRL-ALT+F1 console, you cd'd into /media/sda1/ ???

i also second the lsof -a command.
