The autorun program's polling causes cdrecord to fail, resulting
in destroyed CD-R media. This is on a SCSI drive. Autorun also
seems to cause noticeable system delays when polling the drive
with no CD in it; is the SCSI bus tied up while the drive attempts
to read a CD?
Drive information from dmesg:
Vendor: YAMAHA Model: CRW4416S Rev: 1.0g
Type: CD-ROM ANSI SCSI revision: 02
Solution: Don't start autorun or stop it before burning CDROMs.
Delays are kernel and not autoruns fault.
