Public bug reported:
Binary package hint: k3b
If I'm burning a CD or DVD using k3b, and something happens that
requires a lot of disk of CPU access, k3b does nothing to recover.
First problem: k3b isn't given enough priority to prevent starvation.
So while burning a disc, I decided to start some other program. Stupid
thing to do? Maybe, but k3b should have recovered. Instead, the drive
itself quit burning.
Second problem: k3b doesn't notice that the drive quit and "keeps
going" with the progress meter going along as though nothing happened.
So, the burn-proof option is useless to k3b because it never recognizes
when a problem has occurred.
Naturally, during verify, the disc was found to be corrupt.
** Affects: k3b (Ubuntu)
