It has, and may have changed again in fc18, will have to check. Isn't some of 
this in the window manager, at least in some cases? I remember an option in one 
WM to play music CDs as soon as the tray closed, and that behavior didn't occur 
in the other WM on the same system. GNOME2 vs. KDE if it matters.

Anyway, a useful trip down memory lane, revealing the need to avoid accepting 
something with bright new features without careful attention to ugly new 
limitations.
