Dodgy hardware? If the manual eject button is a bit sticky, it could
have that effect. Seems the most likely explanation to me.
Otherwise, you'ld have to send a specific command to the device to make
it open up -- something that would be pretty unlikely to happen
randomly. Unless you're running any applications that understand how to
make the CD eject? Something along the lines of
camcontrol/atacontrol/cdcontrol? Perhaps hald/dbus -- not that there's
any reason to run those on a dedicated DB server?
