From what I can recall of the discussion at debian's cdwrite
list, it has something to do with the hacky nature of
burnproof. Burnproof supposedly allows the laser to be
repositioned at the point on the track where the writer got a
buffer underrun. The repositioning is likely not to be 100%
precise, leaving a slight gap. This won't be noticeable in a data
cdr, which has more data correction than an audio CD. I have
absolutely no experience testing this on a standalone player ;-)
because the last one I had has been busted for over two years.
Brnproof seems to me to be just like a gun. It's nice for the
sense of security it gives. But if you have to use it at every
turn, then you're probably abusing it. Burn at a slower speed to
avoid the buffer underruns in the first place
