This is the expected behaviour if you didn't unmount the filesystem on the 
thumbdrive before removing it. There was some discussion on this a while ago 
(but I don't seem to be able to find the exact posts), but the general idea 
is that the kernel has no idea in what state the actual physical medium 
(disc) is/was in after being pulled, and may have some stale buffers holding 
data that got written to disk. It doesn't know what to do with this data, or 
how to treat requests to that device, so it panics.

Of course, if you did unmount the filesystem before pulling the drive, then 
this shoule be looked into.
