Can't eject CD in Slackware 14.1 Inappropriate ioctl for device
 
After upgrade to Slackware 14.1 x86_64 I can't eject from console as normal user:

Code:

eject: unable to eject, last error: Inappropriate ioctl for device
I have sufficient permissions etc.
Code:

~> ls /dev/sr0
brw-rw---- 1 root cdrom 11, 0 11-24 22:31 /dev/sr0
~> groups
users lp floppy audio video cdrom plugdev power netdev scanner burning

As root I don't see any errors, but cd-rom isn't ejected. It was working in Slackware 14.0
However I can eject from XFCE Thunar menu (as normal user)

More information:

Code:

~> eject -v

Possibly related to the udev/eject problem... Check this thread and this one.
