Bug Description

When using Exaile with the CD plugin, once a CD has been inserted, it's not possible to eject it graphically (using Thunar-volman).

I have to use eject on CLI for this to work. It looks like Exaile reports that it is using the CD, even when not, and thus the volume manager doesn't accept to unmount it.

Yes, and its just work if you close exaile and unmounbt manually

Once I get udisks2 support working, I'll check this out again.

You have to disconnect the device through Tools->Device Manager , then you can eject it.

This problem appears to no longer be present in the trunk. If you find that to be the case, let me know.

If one runs into this problem in the future, it's possible that CDDB is causing the problem. It opens the file descriptor to the CD, and then never closes it. Exaile closes its file descriptors as of r4490.
