False. As of Fedora 7, umount from the command line works just fine

        [davidz zelda ~]$ mount |grep /dev/scd0
        /dev/scd0 on /media/LOST_S1_DISC2_US type udf (ro,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=hal,uid=500)
        [davidz zelda ~]$ umount /dev/scd0 
        [davidz zelda ~]$ mount |grep /dev/scd0
        [davidz zelda ~]$ sudo /lib/udev/vol_id /dev/scd0

Are the any good reasons why CD-burning software can't invoke umount(8)
or do something else themselves? Nautilus-CD-Burner been able to do this
for years...
