Has anyone else observed this? Sometimes, and without any cause as far as
I can determine, tmux starts using removable media, preventing me from
I start tmux first thing after every reboot. I recently rebooted, logged
in, and started tmux as normal. Then, a little bit later, I mounted a
flash drive, copied some files, and when I went to unmount the drive, I
found that tmux was "using" the drive. I assume this means that the tmux
process had the mounted directory open, as if I had started my tmux
session in a directory somewhere on the mounted removable filesystem--but
I didn't! I had to kill my four sessions just to unmount the drive.
1) Has anyone else seen this, i.e, unexpected tmux "using" of removable
2) What could cause this?
3) Let's say I did start a session or new-window on the mounted
filesystem. I assume that will cause this, if anything. How do I
reverse it or undo it with out killing all my sessions. I closed the
session I was most recently using and then started closing other
sessions that I am *sure* I didn't use since I had mounted the
removable drive, but I couldn't get tmux to release the FS.
I've experienced this three times, now, and I'm baffled.
