I used to have this problem under Red Hat 9 too. Upwards of 90% of the
time it would be FAM watching the drive for updated files, and occasionally
it would be a process generating thumbnails. It's not limited just to
CD-ROMs, but any removable disk. I've seen it on the USB interface to my
digital camera, and once - just once - on a floppy (although now that I
think about it, that one might have been under Severn.)
Sometimes just waiting a few seconds and trying again is enough. Other
times I've had to killall fam or even killall -9 fam.
