Fixing this issue does not involve changing fam. It involves fixing the

I do *not* think its a good thing they people can't eject their cdroms.
However, we need to actually fix the problem, not just blame the nearest

Yes I realize that fixing this issue involves fixing other apps but it
certainly would be nice, in fam, to turn off the monitoring of certain
filesystems until the other apps get fixed.
I suppose the problem with this would be; the apps would never get
fixed.  None of this however helps the poor newbies and people
experimenting with Linux.

How do we help them in the interim?

As a possible workaround, fam could silently ignore monitor requests for files on ro-mounted filesystems.
