True. Except with separate partition you can use usb storage while swap 
is used. Anyway, just tried to open the door while swap is used and it 
simply rebooted, no dialog. So this is bug, not feature? In older system 
opening door physically disabled mmc interface and device nodes were not 
available i.e. you couldn't mount inserted card until door is closed.

But just tried on IT2006 and current 2.6.16 kernel seems to allow this. 
Great, looks like I can use normal sized MMC cards in emergency. Neat 
for browsing photos from sd/mmc based camera :) And this warning dialog 
before removing the card is possible too, very good :)
