Heh, for me, I couldn't manually eject the cdrom when it's in use, unless I wanted to get
a paperclip out and really force the issue.  Which then does lead to messages
getting sent to syslog.

Though, that was a while ago. ;)

You're right about it also looking like the entire virtual drive that might have been
removed too.
