Udev weirdness

This happens with my LFS 6.5 system built using a LFS 6.3 Livecd,
using VirtualBox 3.0.8 as the system.

For some reason, when I use:

udevadm test /sys/block/hdc

(this is the CD/DVD drive that VirtualBox exports)

instead of Udev 145 treating it like a CD/DVD drive, it treats it like
a hard drive of some sort. WTC?!?!? I've never ran into this before,
when I used other host systems, in which this madness dosen't happen
and Udev works fine. Is this because I am using a LFS 6.3 livecd as
the host system? This is odd. I don't know if this is livecd releated,
but it might be.

I can't give you the output since I can't copy and paste from my VM
right now, but I will log it for you. It will be attached soon.
