Package: thunar-volman
Version:  0.3.80-2

System: Debian testing
            kernel 2.6.30-2-686
            Fujitsu Lifebook E8110 (Intel Core Duo T2300)

Pressing the eject button the DVD-drive results in the message : "Failed  
to eject "/org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/storage_model_DW_224E_C.  Given  
device "/org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/storage_model_DW_224E_C" is not a  
volume or drive."

How to repeat:
- start xfce with startx
- insert DVD
- wait until DVD is mounted
- press eject button

It is possible to eject the DVD by clicking "Eject volume" on the DVD  
desktop item.

When pressing the eject button, the system should either unmount and eject  
the volume, or report that the volume is mounted. The present message is  
not useful.
