Tom, are you in 10.7 or 10.6?
Well I'm still using Snow Leopard and I can't eject it either Neil. Sent in a report to Apple also and it's still here in 10.0.2.
Not surprisingly Apple is ignoring the problem as it seems to work for those using Lion.

Hey all, I was ready to jump on Tom for just asking more and more questions without giving a answer. But he may have found a way. I'm not going to say it will work for everyone, but I too couldn't eject a SD card while FCPX was running.
But Tom mentioned ejecting it from the Camera Import window. I normally close that window out right after I select my stuff to import, so I didn't even know there was an eject button there. I was using the normal method of throwing the SD icon into the trash or right-clicking and picking eject.
Anyway, for me, Tom's solution worked.
I just wanted to point that out, as it seemed glossed over. If it works for others, please post so everyone knows it's a viable solution.

BTW, I had to load a clip off 4 cards tonight... and I tried Tom's tip. And I just wanted to say that it seemed to work great... even to the point of after the card has been ingested, I could eject it while it was transcoding. I haven't looked at any of the clips, I will let you know if something went wrong, but at this point it all appears to be working great.

Yeah, my bad... I didn't read every post. Actually I think the guy who posted the first reply outlined the procedure, but for some reason I didn't see it. Or maybe Tom writes better. :-)
But I did say in my post "But he may have found a way. I'm not going to say it will work for everyone, but I too couldn't eject a SD card while FCPX was running." So I didn't think it would work for everyone. But if it helps some people, that's good.
It did work for me... and none of the other methods worked.

I find that when using a card reader I cannot eject a CF card but I can eject SD cards.
I connect via a card reader which has two slots, one for each type of card.
The CF card is from a Canon 5D MII and the SD is from a Gopr0. Today I had both of these plus a Canon XL-H1 connected and showing up in the Camera pane.
In the import window the XL-H1 (tape based) doesn't have an eject button next to it in the Cameras pane but both the other cards do. Note that after trying to eject the CF card the media doesn't show up any more for that card but the card remains and cannot be ejected, either from the Import window or the Finder. **** frustrating.
The SD card ejects no problems.
Used to eject for me on a previous version but not now.
If I connect the 5D direct to the computer it shows up in the Camera pane, but without an Eject option next to it. When I want to remove it I dont need to eject, just pull out the cable.
Connecting the Gopro in this manner still comes up with an Eject button so situation seems to change depending on which camera and how you are accessing the media.

So this seemed to have been fixed previously but in the latest update it resurfaced. Upon completing an import, the "eject" button in the import screen seems to clear the thumbnails, but ejecting the camera (appears as external disks on the desktop) brings an error message that tells me FCP X is using it and it can't be ejected.

Same for me Michael.
Put SDHC card from Canon 600D into SD slot on iMac
In FCPX File>Import>Media
Have check box to close Import window deselected - so window stays open after import.
When import fully complete - select eject icon at top left of Import window next to "Canon EOS" (ie the SD card)
Thumbnails disappear from window - but "Canon EOS" still there
Can not eject from Finder either as it says "cannot eject as it is being used by FCP"
Must quit FCP to be able to then eject SD from Finder.
