'volname' defaults to the wrong device

Bug #224490 reported by bdowd

This bug report was converted into a question: question #56547: 'volname' defaults to the wrong device.

Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
eject (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

The CD device is named /dev/cdrom0. An iso9660 CD is inserted.
In 7.10 '/usr/bin/volname' would read the volume name from the default device /dev/cdrom0 by issuing the command '/usr/bin/volname'
In 8.04 '/usr/bin/volname' returns a NULL string, but '/usr/bin/volname /dev/cdrom1' correctly reads the volume name off of /dev/cdrom0

This is, I think, due to device IDs not matching up between gutsy and hardy, leaving /dev/cdrom pointing nowhere.
