BurnProof not enabled in Nautilus

When I burn a CD with Nautilus, it fails about 25% of the time. Other
burners are not affected. I found that this is because by default, the
gconf key /apps/nautilus-cd-burner/burnproof is not set by default. I
looked at the bug report (
http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=137099 ) and I really think
that the reasons they say they don't have it enabled by default are
invalid. Every CD burning program I've tried, including on Windows,
has had buffer underrun protection enabled by default. If a user
switches to Ubuntu to find that the burner will not function correctly
all the time like it did in Windows, it will degrade their experience.
Comment 8 in the bug report requests some debug info, and I'm
wondering if this will help get the bug fixed, and how I can get that
info. It's been a known problem for several releases of Ubuntu, and
it's disappointing to see that nothing has been done about it.
