Description of problem:
When trying to eject or mount my samsung CD-RW SW-252S the system
freezes (sometimes the mouse still works, sometimes it doesnt).
Keyboard doesn't respond. Drive doesn't open the tray when pushing the
button OR ejecting from a terminal.
Drive works for a few hours before the problem occurs requiring a reboot.
Very similar to bug #103248
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run system for a few hours, occassionally using cd-drive
2. Try ejecting the drive via terminal or open button on the drive

Sometimes if you push the open button a second time the system will
return to usual, but mostly it remains frozen.
