  Eject key on Mac Pro not working

Status in Mactel Support:
Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I've found that on my Mac Pro (Edit: Mac Pro 3,1) running Ubuntu 10.04
  x64 Beta 2 (completely updated as of April 20th 2010), the eject key
  on the keyboard doesn't eject the CD tray. However, on my Macbook,
  with the exact same software setup, the key does work.

  Update: As of Sept 14 2010, pressing the key will eject a CD, but will
  not retract the ejected tray.

  In both cases the eject image appears in the upper-right corner of the
  screen momentarily. Just that a CD will eject on the laptop (MacBook)
  machine and doesn't with the desktop.

  Edit: This had functioned correctly in 9.10
