I've seen that, apparently it will only show you the popups in the
case where there are uncommitted writes that have to be flushed before
the unmount finishes.

I agree that it is strange that it does not behave like this every
time, it would certainly be less worrisome to always show the "it is
now safe..." message.

Same here!
