Basil, Thanks for your reply.

This is a new install of the Lucid beta-2, updated today from the Lucid
sources so that everything is current, not an update from Karmic or
anything else.  

Naturally, I've re-booted several times in the process of verifying that
CD writing works perfectly well in the Mint-8 installation on the same
machine.  Still doesn't work in Lucid; still works very well in

Everything else works wonderfully in Lucid.  I just can't think of how
to troubleshoot this problem.
