I did a google on the message + k3b; the only hit was a .pot file
(message translation file).

I did a plain cmp command:
	# cmp /dev/scd0 /space1/hugh/EJHR-toshiba.iso
	cmp: EOF on /space1/hugh/EJHR-toshiba.iso
Although that is an error message, it is one that suggests success!

In other words, from the viewpoint of an cmp, all the bytes of the
.iso file were there.  The fact that the raw disk didn't have an EOF
at the end is neither surprising nor worrisome.
