nautilus fails to insert disk with eject key

nautilus (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

The nautilus handling of removable media capable of automated insertion is flawed. On a MacPro 3,1, running bionic for instance, the first use of the eject key on the keyboard ejects the SuperDrive DVD tray but the second use of the eject key doesn't cause the tray to auto-insert. This should be possible to fix as the manual execution of 'eject -t' on the command line does cause the ejected tray to auto-insert back into the drive.
