I would agree with Martin Pitt's proposal that the patch which
introduced this behavior be reverted such that the drive does not
unexpectedly close any longer.  That is really the more important issue
here; it will be confusing for users.

It happens for me when I eject a CD manually (pressing the button on the
disc drive to open the tray), or when I click the eject button next to
the drive in Nautilus, or when I am finished burning a CD or DVD image
and the drive is ejected.  In all three situations the drive tray being
sucked back in is highly unexpected behavior.
