If someone knows, I'd like to know it too - or a way to probe how
much data a given DVD media can take (I know at least Nero does some
checking under windows, but is there any way in debian?).

But to the first problem: I build images right out of a local debian
mirror with debian-cd tools - and since some time ago, I have
problems with too large images too:

teefix:/mirror2/mirror/debian-cd$ ls -lah sid-i386-*
- -rw-r--r--  1 ifjke ifjke 702M Sep  3 21:06 sid-i386-1.raw
- -rw-r--r--  1 ifjke ifjke 684M Sep  3 21:08 sid-i386-10.raw
- -rw-r--r--  1 ifjke ifjke 682M Sep  3 21:09 sid-i386-11.raw

And in CONF.sh the limit is set to:

export DEFBINSIZE=675

That ~680 MB ist not exactly 675MB as set in CONF.sh if of differnt
rounding of bytes to MB. But all except the first image are about
680MB which is 20MB larger. I think there was a thread here some
time ago about this.
