comment find supress permission errors
To make the grep work you have to add 2>&1 at the end of the find command so as to bring the error messages within the standard output. But as you rightly guessed, this find will eliminate the minuscule risk of "Permission denied" within file name.

Try to quit Matlab, this might be the origin of a legitimate unmount operation which can't terminate properly because of Matlab keeping files open.

Is this a Finder, client or server problem. When your unmounting problem ocurs, is it possible to do cd /Volumes/josh from Terminal?
