Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: brasero

Tried fully blanking (un-ticked "Fast blanking") a CDRW.  Ubuntu 9.10
(64-bit) seemed to "freeze" - the screen went blank, the mouse was
working, but nothing else would happen.

I have reported problems in the past about DVDRW and CDRW type discs not
being recognised after being blanked - maybe this problem is related to

How do you kill a non-responding program in Linux?  I was able to press
the <CTRL> <ALT> and <F1> keys and get a command screen, but couldn't
kill Brasero as I don't know how to.  In the end, I had to hit the reset
button on my PC.

Yes, the hardware in my computer is working fine, no problems of any
