You should state how you are burning. The program

If you're talking about Brasero, yes, I have this
issue all the time. In fact I've also seen it with
nautilus. Sometimes the DVD will get ejected  after burning
and sometimes it will be ejected, then the door will close
automatically and immediately. Even for the exact same ISO
file. There is no logic to it.

I think this is a race condition between the automounter
and the burning
software:  the burner resets the drive (thereby doing the
eject), then
it reloads the drive but Gnome or whatever is grabbing it
before the
burner code can.  Perhaps disabling the automount would fix

Just an idea to try.
How does one  "disabling the automount"
If you're using Gnome, open the "System" menu, then go to
"Preferences-->Personal-->File Management" and open the "Media" tab.
You can select actions for the various kind of removable media.  Either
set each to "Do Nothing" or select the "Never prompt or start programs on media insertion" option near the bottom.

In KDE, I don't know, but I'm sure there's something similar.

I just burnt the DVD ISO today (one i386, one x86_64) and my automount
is on (like the default).  It didn't cause any problem here, so you
may have a particular hardware issue that might produce a useful bug

I think it may be hal at work, I just tried it on a system with no graphical login, booted and no login at all. Putting a DVD in the drive and closing it resulted in a boatload of blinking lights, and a text login resulted in seeing the media mounted.

Bad hal, bad!
