Bug Description

When trying to add a new CD (Settings -> Repositories -> Add CD) to the apt
sources lists, synaptic claims that another copy of synaptic is running, and is
unable to add new cd.
Exact message is: "Another synaptic is running - There is another synaptic
running in interactive mode. Please close it first.

Please use (in synaptic): "Edit/Add cdrom".

The latest version in hoary will no longer show the other button (the button you
pressed). Note that this inconsistency will be fixed in the future, but it's not
possible right now because python-apt does not have support to directly access
the cdrom scanner that is needed for a propper fix.
