not a udev bug...

I guess, that your cdrom is automounted. To prevent the cdrom to be locked, while the cdrom is mounted do:

# echo 0 > /proc/sys/dev/cdrom/lock
# sysctl -w dev.cdrom.lock=0

to make it permanent
# echo 'dev.cdrom.lock=0' >> /etc/sysctl.conf

I think that is a bug.
The default behaviour should be optical drive unlocked.
