Hmm, it seems that there is another issue.
Looks like k3b invokes cdrecord with unsupported device specification.
Not sure if this is Linux vs FreeBSD issue, or something else (e.g. cdrecord vs

[cdrecord] scsidev: '/dev/cd0'
[cdrecord] devname: '/dev/cd0'
[cdrecord] scsibus: -2 target: -2 lun: -2
[cdrecord] /usr/local/bin/cdrecord: Invalid argument. Open by 'devname' not
supported on this OS. Cannot open or use SCSI driver.
[cdrecord] /usr/local/bin/cdrecord: For possible transport specifiers try
'cdrecord dev=help'.

Looks like cdrecord was started with dev=/dev/cd0 while on FreeBSD it should be
started with something like dev=5,0,0.
