Since this bug has expired it is just possible that nobody cares about
it. Still I just managed to reproduce the situation that a video disk I
ejected is still mounted, and natutilus displays this video disk as well
as the empty DVD I just inserted. "mount", however, shows me only the
video disk.

In this situation, brasero 3.2.0-0ubuntu1 (installed on my system)
allows me to selected a disk image and start "burning" it. After a while
it gets stuck "generating a checksum".

If, however, I recompile brasero from source (3.2.0) and start it then
all five options in the start dialogue are shown as blocked (red circle
with diagonal stroke). I can still select "image" and am allowed the
".iso" file but then I get the message "Please replace the disc with a
supported CD or DVD" (which I would consider sensible). Code inspection
shows that "brasero_track_type_get_has_medium()" returns 0.

When I alternate between the installed brasero and my recompiled version
this is reproducible. So it looks like a fix has been made, though the
version number is still 3.2.0. Or there is a difference in the Ubuntu

Still I seem to remember a time when automatic unmounting of ejected r/o
disks worked better... or not?  But this has got nothing to do with
