Did you try after ripping a CD? That's when mine first failed.

It seems after reboot, the Eject function in KAudioCreator works only once, then won't work again.

On the Jobs tab, you'll see three buttons at the bottom: Remove Completed Jobs, Remove All Jobs, Remove selected jobs. Removing all jobs will cause it to stop ripping. On my system, it hangs for a minute after I click it before asking to confirm.
