I'm not sure if we've had reports of similar issues before. I cannot
The problem probably is that DVD is a fairly well defined standard, so if
your hardware does not follow that standard, my first reaction would be to
say: sorry but we cannot allow for hardware that is not standards
Especially as that would mean we will be using 4 DVDs a lot sooner than we
have to (you're basically asking us to reduce the size by half a CD...).
However, if you can show that the 4.1GB limit _is_ part of some standard
(and I don't mean the documentation of your DVD writer), maybe the
debian-cd team will consider lowering the size.
