novatel usb760 ejection

I am running slackware-current and using the Novatel usb760 3G modem. before i use kppp to "dial out" I have to eject the device. It works fine except that i periodically get a popup window with:

"Failed to eject "VZAccess Manager Device to unmount is not in /media/.hal-mtab so it is not mounted by HAL."

it happens every 30 minutes to every 10 seconds.

anyone ever experience something like this?

I used a similar device, Novatel u727, for quite a while and saw a problem like this from time to time. It happened when the usb device was not present, so it couldn't eject the device. I would remove the usb modem and re-insert it to get the devices created, then I could eject it. It would take a minute or two, so don't try to eject it right a way. Hope this works for you.
