That definitely seems to be the work-around.

That agrees with my conclusion, based on the several lists that I read. Two
points that I'd raise, for you to consider - it works perfectly for some
people, but not for others. It could be hardware-specific, or it could be a
combination of factors, that last being most difficult to test.
Secondly, I have seen reports of it being a problem with CDs or with DVDs,
people saying that one works, but not the other. That to me suggests that
it's not hal. I do wonder whether some burners handle DVD-burning in
particular in a slightly non-standard way. An extreme example is when LG set
one model of burner to use the 'flush-cache' instruction to do something
else, so that installing a distro caused the drive to die totally until LG
released a fix. It seems to me that there may be less-drastic customisations
that may be at fault.
I'm reluctant to blame k3b, as so many people, myself included, use it without
any such problem. If it were the application I would expect it to be
universally experience. At the moment my bet is on hardware.
BTW, have you tested it on both CD and DVD?
