Sorry - I got  confused :-)  You have the problem with CDs, and Gaffer has the 
problem with DVDs but not CDs, if I understand correctly.

ISTR that you can actually see, somewhere in k3b, the command that it is about 
to give to do the burn and verify.  Could you try pasting that command into a 
console, to see whether it works?  That would verify whether k3b is actually 
involved or not.  If it doesn't work at the command line either, then you are 
both probably right - a bug in hal or similar.
