Public bug reported:

$ lsb_release -rd
Description:    Ubuntu Bionic Beaver (development branch)
Release:        18.04

$ apt-cache policy thunar
  Installed: 1.6.15-0ubuntu1
  Candidate: 1.6.15-0ubuntu1
  Version table:
 *** 1.6.15-0ubuntu1 500
        500 bionic/universe amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

Hardware: MacBook Pro 9,1

Steps to reproduce:

1) mount a ext4 partition of a USB harddisk

2) do something with the mounted partition, doesn't seem to matter what

3) Using the eject button in the Thunar window sidebar, eject the
mounted partition of the USB HDD.

4) After the USB HDD is ejected and spins down, unplug it.

At (3), the disk ejects normally.  But Thunar thinks it hasn't been ejected and 
is still trying to eject.  The "Writing data to device" notification continues 
to display.  Eventually, Thunar pops up an error dialog saying 'Failed to eject 
"<filesystem label>".  Timeout was reached.'  Sometimes Thunar will exit after 
this message is closed.

For what it's worth, the specific USB HDDs in my case have more than one
partition, but I'm only mounting and using a single ext4 partition
before ejecting the disk.
