Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
2.6.15-1.1864_FC5 and 2.6.15-1.1881_FC5 have the problem, FC5T2 release didn't.
Steps to Reproduce:
Install FC5T2 and successfully write to a CD-RW disc. Upgrade the kernel and
observe that it fails.
It's working again now. Not entirely sure whether it's bad hardware that
decided to come good or whether the latest kernel fixed the bug. I've been
unable to reproduce the bug on other machines so suspect the hardware.
