You can always as "su" umount the drive? Or Im I missing something?

You can just pull the plug, IF the filesystem is flushed, you can set
the behaviour by right clicking on the USB stick icon -> Properties ->
Mounting -> Flushed IO, this will always flush the fs while copying to
it, can cause slowdown. There is also the Synchronous option, cant
remember what thats for?
