Without knowing the parameters to lseek64 here, I would guess this is
a defective previous session os a linux kernel bug.
Mmm. That's why I added the DEBUG output
lseek(f, 2607382528, SEEK_SET)
How can I test the previous session? It has been written successfully
Are you sure that your system doesn't try to mount or check a DVD when
you put it in the drive? Some of this is in the window manager and some
in udev, although once I told the WM not to ever look at an optical

Fedora  in use here.
