Re: dvd writes truncated 3 Mbytes

I've just tried to burn a dvd iso 4 times, 2 different brands of disks,
getting an identical but bad md5sum for all 4 writes.
K3B reports it has written 1160 of 1163 Mbytes each time, but doesn't
seem to have a problem with that.
Kernel is 126.96.36.199, without packet writing for cd/dvd turned on, but I
have one with it enabled building now. K3B is 0.11.13, cdrecord is
2.1(dvd), groisofs is 5.21, mkisofs is 2.1-a34. The drive is a Lite-On
I just ran growisofs from the cli, and it also gets exactly the same
bad md5sum, not reporting the final write. Here is the cli line & end
of burn session reports:
[root@coyote FC4]# growisofs -dvd-compat -Z /dev/cdrom=CAELinuxBeta1.iso
1188462592/1219631104 (97.4%) @3.9x, remaining 0:05
1207107584/1219631104 (99.0%) @3.9x, remaining 0:02
builtin_dd: 595536*2KB out @ average 3.9x1385KBps
/dev/cdrom: flushing cache
/dev/cdrom: writing lead-out
[root@coyote FC4]# md5sum </dev/cdrom
This last is the same bad md5sum I've seen 4 times before.
Has anyone else encountered a similar problem? I've been making
good cd's all along with no problems, in this new drive, till now.
I've supposedly subscribed to this list, but in 30 minutes, no
confirmation message has appeared.
dd if=/dev/cdrom bs=2k count=595536 | md5sum -
Joerg has explained this in some detail, as have several of us, you must
read back what you write, no more no less, then the check will be
