Pathfinder shows external HDD as ejected, although it is actually not

As said in the title - when I eject an external hard drive, Pathfinder shows as if it is ejected immediately (hides the HDD icons from the sidebar), no matter in what state the HDD is at the moment. If the external HDD is busy, Pathfinder still shows it as ejected for quite a long time, before realizing it could not actually be ejected. But very often I unplug the device without waiting, cause it is natural to unplug, when it is shown as unplugged. In Finder that can never happen, cause it will never show the HDD as ejected, unless it is really safe. As a result I often eject the hard disk while it's working and get the error message...
