Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: gnomebaker

When I try to burn a dual layer data DVD of my filesystem using ONLY the
Rock Ridge format (to avoid Joliet/ISO nesting limits which *cannot* be
overridden in GnomeBaker using '-D'), I get the following error:

GnomeBaker 0.6.0

Executing 'genisoimage -gui -V Backup Vol.2 -A GnomeBaker -iso-level 3 -l -r -hide-rr-moved -graft-points --path-list /tmp/GnomeBaker-bobo/gnomebaker-RWD7XT | builtin_dd of=/dev/hdd obs=32k seek=0'
I: -input-charset not specified, using utf-8 (detected in locale settings)
genisoimage: Directories too deep for 'dev/bmpx/xpi/chrome/skin/classic/bmp/.svn' (7) max is 6.
:-( write failed: Input/output error

This has also been reported on the Sourceforge tracker here:

I'm going to try upgrading to Gutsy, so I'll see if newer packages solve
the problem.  Let me know if I can get you any more information.
