Well, either try to umount your partition before dismounting the key, or 
you have stumbled on the same bug as me : sometimes, the USB 2 code lose 
a transaction, gets desynchronized, and hangs while trying to reset the 
BBB layer.

In fact, this almost never happens while reading, but almost immediately 
while writing.
