This issue came up on the list earlier this year (summer time?)
Somebody here spent a bunch of time trying to recreate the problem,
and IIRC the problem went away if you burn the DVD at a slower speed.
 I know that sounds far fetched, but that's the solution I remember
(even if I can remember why it works)

Try that, or search the archives for more.
