He says it does _not_ happen on RH, hence it might be a debian-specific
thing (his words :-)

But IMHO eject only attempts to eject if the umount succeeds. The
"device busy" message comes not from eject trying to eject a mounted
cdrom, it comes from trying to umount an in-use filesystem. I think.
I believe that before eject tried to umount by itself, eject would
simply silently fail to do anything. However, that's a long time ago.
Perhaps I'm completely confused :-)

That would be useful. Make sure he's using the current version (the 2.x
one) to prevent any confusion.
