kernel panics when dvd/cd is inserted, normal boot without cd/dvd

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050524 Fedora/1.0.4-4 Firefox/1.0.4
Description of problem:
I updated to 2.6.12-1.1387_FC4 and when I rebooted I had a CD in the DVD-drive. The computer froze right after the 'setting hostname' section. When I remove the CD or DVD I have no problem booting. When I insert it at a later stage (eg. when working in GNOME the machines agains locks up solid).
So I tried booting without rhgb and saw a panic scrolling across my screen. What is the best way to capture this? (using sysrq and emergency sync doesn't seem to help)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot with CD in drive
2. load 2.6.12-1.1387_FC4 kernel
Actual Results: Kernel panics, the machine locks up.
So I tried this with the old version kernel-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4 and I had no problems.
This may be related to bug #162295 and/or bug #162359. See what happens if
you insert the same media AFTER booting.
Sorry, I should have said to see what happens if you attempt to MOUNT the same
media after booting (although in graphical mode it happens by default if you
didn't change the settings under "Desktop/Preferences/Removable Drives and Media
