I don't know if this is related to your problem, but coming from a mandrake 
background, I was used to the eject command unmounting _and_ ejecting.
When I tried to eject a mounted cd using debian, it failed.
My solution was to convert the Mandrake rpm using alien and install it.
Works fine here.

all the best,
