Since installing 10.14.2, I can no longer format volumes to APFS:
Disk Utility fails to umount the volume.
Even after stopping each and every thinkable process, it hangs in the umount phase.
Quickly trying on my 10.14.1 MacBook was successful.
Bug?

Waiting for 10.14.3 etc. etc. ..........
;JOOP!

Additional info:
it seems that Disk Utility can not umount volumes during First Aid or Erasing,
at least not in the way it used to do.
I managed to perform both operations on an unmounted device.
Getting a device in the unmounted but accessible state may be complicated.
;JOOP!

Yes, every new release brings new 'surprises'.
But there's worse in the world than 10.14 ...
;JOOP!
