It would prove something if the eject command fails under those desktops. 
If it fails, it would prove that the eject command is broken in an
officially supported desktop, and therefore should be fixed.  If it does
not fail, it would indicate that TDE is doing something slightly different
that either exposes an existing bug in the eject system or directly causes
it to fail.
