  Cannot eject flash memory card

Status in eject package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  As a normal user, insert SDHC flash memory card, it mounts ok, but
  there is an error when trying to eject it:

   $ eject /media/00F0-82C2
  eject: unable to open `/dev/mmcblk0p1'

   $ eject --version
  eject version 2.1.5 by Jeff Tranter (tranter@xxxxxxxxx)

   $ dpkg -l | dpkg-grep eject

  This is happening in all recent versions of Ubuntu from Maverick to

  sudo eject works ok, and the device permissions are:
    brw-rw---- 1 root disk 179, 1 Oct  1 12:00 /dev/mmcblk0p1

  Looks like the permissions handling needs to be changed.
  Either the insert and the eject should both work, or they both should not work. Being able to insert, but not eject is inconsistent and ridiculous.
