Discover which programs prevent disk image ejection

Activity Monitor, has a big "i" next to the "stop sign" that shows you the open files of an app.

Not to be completely dismissive, but that really solves the reverse problem: if I can't throw out a file, I want to know which application has that particular file open, not which files a particular application has open. Also, Activity Monitor's open-file interface (in 10.4, anyway) is inelegant: I just tried looking at the files held open by a few applications, for example, and they all seem to have dozens or hundreds of open files, with no way to search through them or even sort them alphabetically.
