Description of problem:
Note: this may be a problem in dvd+rw-tools/mkisofs, really.

When burning a file larger than 2GB to a DVD+RW (this is that I tried,
I am quite confident it happens with all other types of DVD media,
too), burning the file works just fine, and the resulting media can be
mounted without problems.

However, accessing portions of the file beyond the 2GB barrier fails
(IMHO iso9660 has a 2GB file size limit).

When enabling UDF the media is mounted as UDF, and the complete file
can be accessed.

So, k3b ought to warn the user that there may be trouble reading the
files he is about to burn unless he enables UDF.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Burn a file larger than 2GB to a DVD
2. Try to read back the file from the media

Actual Results:  No warning, but readback fails due to 2GB file size limit

Expected Results:  k3b ought do display a warning to the user.
