Why don't you file a bug report with Debian and/or the maintainers of
mount? (Or automount, if you're using that for your cdrom; or hotplug,
if you're using that for your cdrom. But it doesn't sound like either
of those are involved.)
Oh, and umount first.
Needless to say, I don't care what XP does or doesn't do. A bug is
relative to what the software should be doing, not to what some other
piece of software does or doesn't do.
