Releasing Mounted Volumes

This is an old problem I used to also experience in Supercard... a 
decade-old small but persistent nag-problem on the Mac:

Rev 2.2.1
OSX panther

I do 75% of my daily work with files that live on an OSX server on the 
LAN. My Rev apps access the server, read files, write files etc. all 
kinds of stuff.  If I close and remove all the stacks that were reading 
and writing file on the server... when I try to dismount the server I 
still always get a message:

"The Disk OurLocalServer is in use and could not be ejected. Try 
quitting applications and try again."  [OK]

So, I have to quit Revolution and then dismount the server... This will 
NOT be the case for  example with BBEdit... where, if I read and write 
a file on the server, then close it in BBEdit, but BBEdit is still 
running, i can dismount the volume... Is there some command i can issue 
from Revolution that will "let go" the server? Kill some process??

TIA
