dvd+rw-tools fully support DVD multi-sessioning and if growisofs fails,
then you most likely have wrong expectations:-)

Except that -multi option is effectively ignored and media is recorded
in DAO mode. DAO recordings are *unappendable* by definition, in other
words disk is basically finalized and *no* program on earth will be able
to append data to it. If you want to record multi-session DVD you have
to perform initial recording on either:
- *virgin* DVD-R or DVD-RW media;
- *fully blanked* DVD-RW media;
- DVD-RW media formatted for Restricted Overwrite;
with growisofs -Z and keep using growisofs -M to append more data. It's
the only way. A.
