As the person that rolled floppy eject support into 'eject', I'm kinda
interested in this.

Can you strace it and send me any relevant output?  This sounds like it
could be a 2.1 kernel related problem, though.  And as RH isn't using any
2.1 kernel stuff yet (at least not on the SPARC), I haven't had occasion
to try it there.

Also, can you do anything *else* with the floppy?  If the "resource" is
too busy to eject, one could rightly assume it's too busy to do anything
else with, too.
