How do I disable DVD auto eject in Windows 7?

I just discovered an incredibly annoying "feature" of Windows 7 tonight. If you click on your optical drive in Explorer, and there is no disc in the drive, Windows 7 is kind enough to open the tray for you. I'm finding it hard to contain my rage over this idiotic design decision. WTF?

You could try disabling the Windows built-in burn functionality. Apparently, this will also stop the auto-eject feature. You can read more about it here.
