I agree, this "feature" has been driving me mad for ages. It's got to the 
stage I mount removable media from the cli, it's so much less grief. 
Sometimes fam get its nose in and you have to kill that as well (also fam is 
prone to looping with 80% cpu usage). The commands "fuser /mnt/cdrom" and 
"lsof +D /mnt/cdrom" can help, but on occasion I have been reduced to logging 
off. :-((
