Well, that's not what's happening.  I was able to confirm the behavior
on my test system.

On the ThinClient,

/media/Manufacturername/rawdevice # like sdb


/media/Manufacturername/partition # like sdb1

remain after unplugging the flash drive.

I just checked, x2gousbmount contains a step to force-umount the media
after removal, and to somehow let X2GoClient know about it by doing
things in ~/export/, but it never contained a step to remove the
directory *on the thinclient*.

Also, it looks like the X2GoServer is simply monitoring directory
existence on the thinclient - because as soon as you manually rmdir the
empty directory on the thinclient, it also disappears from the server.

I could simply add an rmdir step to the umount routine in x2gousbmount,
but given what you wrote above, I'm wondering if it's supposed to happen
somewhere else, and failing.

Any insights?  Should I proceed or go rmdir-grephunting across the X2Go
source first?

Kind Regards,
