Yep, bad assumption. Just pull the thing out and keep going. I've been doing
that for the last couple of years and have yet to have a problem with one of
the things. It has something to do with the difference between the way win
and linux do cacheing of the write stuff. Apparently linux writes
immediately so nothing is lost, so long as you dont pull it out during a
write and that is easy to tell, look at the LED first.
