Fedora 19 with the AMD Catalyst 13.6 driver: Optical drive disappears after suspend/resume

This is the problem I'm having, except it's in Fedora, not Slackware:

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/slackware-14/no-dev-sr0-dvd-cdrom-detected-after-resume-from-suspension-4175452609/

Basically, I have no problem with the optical drive during normal operation. But once I suspend and then resume, it's gone.

Here is the output of cd-drive:

[steven@shr ~]$ cd-drive

If anybody has any ideas on how to "resurrect" the DVD drive after a resume, I'm ready to try 'em.
