See below.

No - it was all done safely.
I did the following: (missing out actions that aren't relevant)

o Plug the USB connector in; wait for the box to mount it
o df ; rm /mnt/usbdisk/<path_to_bundled_media/<bundled_media> ; df
o <scratch head>
o umount /mnt/usbdisk
o unplug device then reconnect USB
o df
o <further head scratch>

That's why I was a bit stumped :-)
