I found a number of cases where x2gocdmanager was not mounting/unmounting
CDROMs as expected. Namely:
- When CDs were changed quickly, the change of CD was not detected and the
  old CD stayed mounted
- Sometimes the umount failed because some files were still open (and
  similar cases). In that case x2gocdmanager considered the CD umounted and
  all further tries to mount a CD failed.

I append a patch which apart from these problem cases
- creates support for a log file, so problems can be more easily debugged.
  If the log file is not present a warning will be printed, but
  x2gocdmanager will work without logging as it was before
- makes an effort to unmount everything in /media at the start of the
- includes some basic debug output so that further problems can be
  pinpointed more easily

Indentations are a bit broken in the patch...

coerced, comply as much as you must to protect yourself, just don't support
it. Noone can free you but yourself. (crag, on Debian Planet)
