   Currently you can unplug an USB device, get the device and upper abstraction
   layers (i.e. sd) detached and if the device was mounted you end with accessing
   invalid or freed data structures.

this is simply a bug that should be fixed.
it used to work a couple of years ago.

(not that i'm against anything proposed here.)
