It's polling the cd for changes so that the tree in the browser is updated
automatically..  It's not doing anything but asking for the layout of tracks
on the disc.  No better way to do it, really.  If you're getting kernel
messages from it, I'd recommend upgrading to a newer kernel w/ better dvd

Or, if you don't use the CD playing capabilities, you could just remove cd.pmo
from your plugins dir, and it'll quit polling the drive.
