Comment 23 for bug 283316

I would agree with Martin Pitt's proposal that the patch which introduced this behavior be reverted such that the drive does not unexpectedly close any longer. That is really the more important issue here; it will be confusing for users.

It happens for me when I eject a CD manually (pressing the button on the disc drive to open the tray), or when I click the eject button next to the drive in Nautilus, or when I am finished burning a CD or DVD image and the drive is ejected. In all three situations the drive tray being sucked back in is highly unexpected behavior.
