On my system (generic 2.4.24 kernel, Plextor 708A connected
via ide-scsi) I observed the same symptom. I found that I had
to eject the CD-RW and reinsert it to see the second session.
I used cdrecord for writing. I haven't tried whether the same
happens with DVD-/+ media and dvd+rw tools.
My suspicion is that the kernel caches the result of reading
the table of contents somewhere and fails to notice that the
disc has changed. I have not tried to verify that by looking
at the source, though.
