It seems there's a known bug filed at bugs.kde.org :

It describes what sounds like exactly the same problem, originally filed 
against KsCD 1.4.1 on KDE 3.2.3 on Debian testing (Sarge) in Nov.2004.

There are 3 confirmations from other people, the latest in July 2006 against 
KsCD 1.6 on Debian testing (Etch).  There is some suggestion the bug prevents 
*data* DVDs from being read while KsCD is loaded (I haven't tried that).

Bizarrely, the bug status is marked "UNCONFIRMED" despite 3 other people 
confirming it ...  how can that be ?   I guess despite this means nobody's 
working on it, despite it being assigned to Aaron Seigo.

I'd like to add another confirmation, but I'd *really* like to be able to say 
either "I'm the only Formal Release Sarge user reporting this", or "At least 
n other Debian users have confirmed this" ... so, er,  which is it ?  Could 
some other folks reading this please just say whether this happens or doesn't 
happen for them ?

(Maybe you all use Amarok, and hardly anyone uses KsCD ...)
