The reliability of Xfburn is likely due to its relying on the
non-controversial libburnia libraries.
As for Brasero (on Debian and Ubuntu), the varying levels of
reliability may be down to its depending (via brasero-cdrkit) on the
controversial 'wodim' (which is a fork of 'cdrtools'). According to
the original author of cdrtools, the 'wodim' fork is badly broken and
unmaintained BUT shipped by default in Debian/Ubuntu. See one-sided
and detailed account of the controversy:
