Thank you for the details of the issue you are experiencing with your external hard drive. I recommend these steps when you are unable to eject the disk:
If you can’t eject an external disk
- Choose Apple menu > Log Out, and then log in again. Try to eject the disk again.
- If you still can’t eject the disk, choose Apple menu > Shut Down. Disconnect the disk from your computer, and then start up your computer again.
Thank you for using Apple Support Communities.

I'm having the same problem and I do not think that having to shutdown is a reasonable solution. I have 3 HDDs and want to cycle through them without having to do shutdown everytime I need to switch. As far as I can tell this behaviour is new in Mavericks because I definitely could do it before.
