I found one reference (but to Gnomebaker, not nautilus-cd-burner):
Here, the image was automatically being burnt in multi-session mode;
writing the extra metadata was preventing it from fitting (but of course, in
single-session "disc-at-once" mode it did fit).
[For somebody whom has a spare CDR], does doing:
dd bs=1 seek=$((80*60*75*2048-1)) count=1 if=/dev/zero of=jaunty-desktop-i386.iso
Followed by GUI clickiness, work?
PS. Launchpad folks, https://bugs.launchpad.net/792 still doesn't work.
Why do one side of a triangle when you can do all three. Somewhere, GB.
