I am pasting some interesting knobs from the log:

What we can see here is:
1) libvirt asks qemu to eject
2) qemu responds with "Device is locked" - which is correct as it emulates guest request
3) However, after a while, the guest decides it's now safe to eject the media (e.g. all reads have finished, and the device has been unmounted) which is done
4) [not in the pasted log] After a while, you've decided to try again and this time it succeeded, as the tray is already opened.

What we may do here is lifting the number of retries up. You can try yourself:
