Hm, true. Any distro actually using autofs though? SuSE isn't, don't
know about others. Can one assume that people who use the command line

What I meant was those autothingies should keep their hands off a disk
while a burn process is happening. Dunno whether it's possible to detect
this, but isn't that the way it should be?
