I tested this under Xfce 4.10 and KDE 4.8.5 in Slackware 14. With both desktops eject works for optical disks and the icons disappear with the equivalent of Safely Remove. I don't think the problem is udev/eject problem. Also nobody is reporting eject problems with Slackware 14.

In my xsession log I see the following when I select Eject from the popup menu:

[tdeinit] Got EXT_EXEC 'eject' from launcher.
[tdeinit] eject is executable and not a library. Launching with exec.
ioctl: Input/output error

After selecting the Eject option from the popup menu, even root can't run the eject command from a terminal. Oddly, after I use the drive button to force the eject, the eject command starts working again for root and non root users. Seems as though there is a soft lock of some sort.

As you are not seeing either problem, at this point I suspect a build issue, similar to what we saw yesterday with the lone WITH_HAL qualifier.
