No, it's harmless. Trouble is that when growisofs pre-formats the blank,
it fails to instruct finalization procedure about it. The only side
effect is this redundant in this case attempt to CLOSE SESSION. It will
naturally be fixed in next 7.2 release, but till then it can be safely
ignored. You might want to consider explicitly pre-formatting media with
dvd+rw-format in order to reserve larger spare area. Recall that BR-R
media can be formatted only once and prior actual recording.

It wouldn't be necessary. A.
