Package: exo-utils
Version: 0.3.4-3
Severity: normal

When the media is mounted, and I press the eject button on my DVD drive,
I get an error like:

Failed to eject

Given device "/org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/storage_serial_KW13613672SC0"
is not a volume or drive.

This is a know problem, and there is a patch available. See
