Often (but not always), when I eject external flash drives, the finder window automatically closes. I then re-open a finder window and see that the eject worked fine. Its just that the finder auto-closes some times when ejecting flash drives.
I have other external media (hard drives) that when ejected, the finder never auto-closes. It only seems to happen with external flash drives.
I'm running SL 10.6.2.

Wow, its funny that I never made this connection before.
Yup, I just tried it and the finder does NOT close if the finder is viewing some other folder or drive when ejecting media, but ALWAYS closes if viewing the external media and ejecting that media. Makes sense. Interesting :^D
