[Shotwell] Call for testing

First, I want to thank everyone out there who put in the time last month to
test Shotwell. All those reports *really* paid off in terms of working out
corner cases and squashing some serious bugs.
We can use your help again. We've noticed under Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic) that
Shotwell is having trouble unmounting cameras. It reports a failure to
unmount although the camera was indeed unmounted. Shotwell then winds up in
a bad state. The only recourse is to close Shotwell and restart it, and
things work fine thereafter.
I committed to the 0.4 branch a fix for this. However, it could use more
testing, as it involves a problem that is hardware-dependent and
timing-sensitive. We didn't see this in the past, and there's concern about
different results under different versions of GTK.
If you have a chance to test this and let us know how it goes, it would be
greatly appreciated. To get the latest 0.4 use the following command:
svn co svn://svn.yorba.org/shotwell/branches/shotwell-0.4
This requires Vala 0.7.9 to compile, which is available at
