Another cause...

If you launch an application directly from the disk image, this can also cause the disk to fail to eject when you're done with it. I've had this happen a couple of times, and the only solution was a restart or just waiting -- I did a "ps aux | grep programname" and found that there was a process from the mounted image (even though I quit the app), but then the phone rang. When I came back 15 minutes later, the "kill" command failed and a repeat of the "ps" command failed to find the process. Quite odd!
