Although this is from wodim the report is
obviously about an SCSI error and i would
bet it stems from a 1:1 copy of your code.

hald can make CD/DVD burns fail. But hardly
DVD+RW. On overwriteables you can freely
mix read and write operations.
I do not believe that hald interrupts background
I would also expect from the specs that DVD+R
and BD-R can stand hald interference. Both are
allowed to have more than one logical track open
and you hardly can manage them without intermediate
After system startup i kill the processes named
hald-addon-storage. They are the ones on my
SuSE 10.2 which quite reliably spoild CD-RW burns.
I cannot agree to the opinion that a _modern_
Linux system could not live without hald. It is
about the playfulness of the user interface
and the incapacitation of its user.
Nevertheless it is cumbersome to strip a SuSE
Linux from all unnecessary automats. So one
better selectively disables those which are
known to make trouble.
Have a nice day :)
