Re: Problem using a TEAC DV-W22E with dvd+rw-tools/cdrecord-prodvd/dvdrtools.

Can one criticize dvd+rw-tools for so to say sweeping the bug under the carpet, which might have indirectly complicated life for other applications and their developers? Well, one could *if* it was done silently. But it wasn't. Thorough problem analysis was presented to the public on a FreeBSD list (see http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-ports/2003-December/007424.html) the moment this [non-intrusive] workaround was introduced in dvd+rw-tools 5.15.x update. The problem description explicitly mentions that *all* recording applications are affected, thus depicting how serious problem is. A.

If you did know about the bug before I did, I may well critisize you:

Why didn't you send a bug report

I'm ready to accept criticism as soon as somebody can point out what was it in the referred post, which discredits it as as a bug report? Note that pointer to the referred report was posted on this list the same day, along with dvd+rw-tools 5.15.x announcement. A.
