I also have this bug, resulting from using K3B with default options.  I
have a 4 GB backup file from a Windows backup tool that I am trying to
burn to DVD.  There are clearly quite a few people who have had this
problem, and it's 100% reproducible and already fixed upstream in
development builds, so it would be good to see a fix in Ubuntu -
currently this is something that Windows handles without problems.

I'm on Breezy with mkisofs called from k3b.  I've attached the debug
info generated from k3b.

Package: mkisofs
Version: 4:2.01+01a01-4ubuntu3

There's also a significant GUI bug in k3b here - despite files being
skipped by mkisofs, the user is given no warning of this at all....
Luckily there was only one file involved here, so the error was obvious.
