  ejecting cd/dvd sometimes fails

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:
Status in udev package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Since upgrading from ubuntu 10.04 to ubuntu 12.04 the eject command
  sometimes fails to eject the drive:

  michael@quad:~/download$ eject
  eject: unable to eject, last error: Inappropriate ioctl for device

  This happens when there is no medium in the drive.
  Expected behaviour would be to open the drive so that a medium can be inserted.

  Sometimes this also happens with a medium in the drive.
  In this case pressing "Eject" at the drive ejects the medium, thus the medium in the drive was not locked.

  dmesg does not show any errors when eject failed.
