The exact thing happens if you press the eject button on the drive
while a disk is still mounted.  Once you unmount the disk the button
works again!  (But then again I once had dselect crash leaving the
drive in a mounted state, although it was not actually mounted, and a
ps -ax didn't show which process was using the drive.)
