Audio CDs being locked into drive

I have been spending most of the day ripping my audio CDs using KAudioCreator. After each CD finishes, when I go to push the CD drive's eject button, nothing happens, even after several tries. I need to open a terminal and use the eject command as root (normal user doesn't work).

When the CD drive is empty, or before I start ripping the inserted CD, the eject button on the drive responds immediately.

Can anybody else confirm this? If not, it's probably something on my system. If so, I'm filing a bug report.
