Description of problem:
When using K3b to burn a DVD, the process start fine but the the end of the burning process just give a failure message.
Here's the Output of the console :
/dev/hdb: flushing cache
:-[ SYNCHRONOUS FLUSH CACHE failed with SK=3h/ASC=11h/ACQ=05h]: Input/output error
DVD-writer is a Pioneer DVD-R 110, 5 mounths old
The problem here is that :
-it worked fine until recently (about one mounth, one mounth and a half ago, I don't burn DVDs everyday to have a precise date)
-it works if the machine is booted on w**dows and the disk burned with Nero
-it works if you use NeroLinux to burn the disk
-the gnome CD/DVD Creator (launched automaticaly when a blank disk is inserted) fails too
-the DVD-writer works fine on another system with w**dows (couldn't test on another OS)
So my guess is that the mkisofs, growisofs, cdrecord, etc tools that are used to burn are at fault OR there is an awfull bug that appeared into the recent kernel series (2.6.14).
It doesn't seem specificaly K3b related problem but as there's many factors involved I rather post it like this so that it may be more visible to people that may have the same behaviour.

Steps to Reproduce:
2.burn a DVD-R
Actual Results: DVD writing fails
Expected Results: DVD writing successes
system up-to-date at 5 jan. 2006 (yum upgrade done)
forgot to mention, by "end of burning" I mean that the datas are burned at 100%
and the lead-out process starts, but it says some time after this that it failed.
The disc you get is not readable, and if inserted in the writer again it is even
seen as a blank disc (wich it is obviously not).
