wodim does not properly support DVD media because the 
mature DVD support code from the original software has been
replaced by something half baken in wodim.

Wodim is no option for two reasons: wodim does not 
correctly support DVD media and wodim cannot be legally 
distributed - wodim is in conflcit with GPL and Copyright.

growisofs seems to have problems with DVD-RW media
and I would guess that you cannot give any garantee for
a possible fix.

If you like a solution for today, the only option I see is to
use a recent cdrtools version.
