I did this test based on your concerns.  I stopped the hal service and 
that also stopped ivman as well.  I then went to K3b and burned a CD 
with it set to verify the data.  It burned fine, even erased the CD 
beforehand, but it did not verify the data.  It ejected the CD and then 
sat there.

I don't think based on this that hal is the problem.  It did the same 
with hal stopped as it did when it was running.  Seems like K3b needs a 
little kick.  ;-)

What you think??
