Yes, one can definitely conclude that limited playability is caused by
insane "Last border-out" value recorded upon disc closing procedure in
Incremental mode. To be more specific. At the end of Incremental
recording you have the option to close session a) keeping the media
appendable and b) keeping the disk closed. Essentially it's similar to
CD-R. Apparently invalid value is recorded when disc with only one
session is closed unappendable. I'd say it's a serious firmware bug, do
report it to the vendor.

Define "not working." Do you pass -speed=1 and it records at 2x? Or does
growisofs refuses to start with "failed to change write speed" error?
Only latter is considered as "not working"...

DAO is exclusively DVD-dash thing. There're 4 (four) essentially
different track/session closing procedures implemented in your firmware:
DVD-dash Incremental, DVD-RW Restricted Overwrite, DVD+RW and DVD+R. All
four are rather independent, which leaves room for 4 implementation
bugs. In other words: take *nothing* for granted:-) A.
