Gnome-2.18: Ejecting CD/DVD ROMs

Hi all,

I'm really pleased with the GNOME stack working to automatically mount
inserted storage devices. Identifies everything perfectly, creates
mount points in /media and mounts them to the user running GNOME.
Everything just works.

However, it won't properly eject the CD/DVDs. Choosing 'Eject' from the
volume manager panel applet gives an error.

Gnome-volume-manager and gnome-mount are installed. There is no 'eject'
program installed. Any clues?
