That "some gnome based tool" is called gnome-mount and is a part

It should be enough to uncheck in preferences a box which

Using the same terminal window you could use gnome-umount
from a command line (type 'gnome-umount --help' for a start)
and you do not have to be root for that; but it would be

It is possible that something makes a mount point "busy"
only it is hard to guess what that may be if you are not
