Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: brasero

Very similar to bug 307957.  Brasero terminates when it encounters a
file name beginning with % (which came off a Windows Partition) claiming
there were duplicate files in the directory. Problem disappeared when I
rename the file to a name without the %. The code obviously was cleverly
written - plodding code would have worked better (I can say this from my
personal experience of 30+ years in software development) - I dare say
it is also the reason for bug 307957 as well.
