I don't think there is anything wrong. The automounter does not use the
traditional method with fstab, so umount does not work (my poor
understanding of it).

Go to the System tab in the left-hand panel of Konqueror and find your
mounted device under Storage Media. Right-click and choose "Safely
Remove" for the automounter to unmount the device.
