As far as I am aware getacl/setacl are a standard part of Fedora itself. 
They provide the ability to set security rights on files and directories 
without having to touch ownership and without having to use chmod to 
change attributes. I just thought there might be something in your 
system that might be changing the acl information without you realizing 
it as an ls or ls -l does not show acl information.

I guess also the problems you are having may be K3B itself, I have a lot 
of problems with K3B producing 2 or 3 coasters before it will produce a 
usable cd/dvd, which can't be attributed to hardware as I don't have 
this problem under windows on the same hardware.
