Think it is'nt the generic cdrom driver. I don't see such problems with my
two SCSI drives (nec/teac), but with the IDE cdrom (mitsumi). It's probably
some ide-specific problem. And perfectly reproduceable: rmmod ide-cd,
insmod ide-cd ==> eject button is locked. However, eject by software works
just fine.
BTW: I have a box with a real old BIOS, it does not touch the CD-ROM. Maybe
this is important.

Linux hackers are funny people: They count the time in patchlevels.
