After mounting a zip drive the disk doesn't get locked in the drive, I can
eject it without unmounting.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. insert zip disk in drive
2. mount it
3. press eject
Actual Results: The disk pops out.
Expected Results: The disk should of stayed inside until unmount.
Can you try disabling "magicdev" and/or "autorun" in the Control Center?
This program tends to cause this kind of behavior.
Both magicdev and autorun are disabled.
I forgot to mention that the drive is a zip 100 plus connected to a ISA Iomega
Zoom SCSI card.
The same goes for the paralell port Zip-drive with ppa-module

For me, kernel 2.4.3-12 from updates.redhat.com fixes this problem.
