beginning with kernel-image-2.6.8-3-k7_2.6.8-16sarge5, I am no longer able to 
write files to a DVD-RAM with udf-filesystem which are bigger than 1G. When 
copying files greater than the mentioned size to the DVD-RAM, I get the error 
message "File size exceeded". Copying smaller files works.

This problem also exists after upgrading to the latest kernel-image 

When reverting back to the old kernel (kernel-image-2.6.8-3-k7_2.6.8-16sarge4) 
or when formatting the medium with an ext2-filesystem, the problem 
disappears, so this problem seems to be related to the udf-filesystem.

I did a Google search and found a posting with the same problem which seems to 
affect Debian Etch testing only:

I did not find anything related in the Debian Bug-tracker.

Am I missing a parameter or option to be able to write files greater than 1GB 
to an udf-filesystem after upgrading?

I am using this DVD-drive: HL-DT-STDVD-RAM GSA-H20L

ulimit -a:
core file size        (blocks, -c) 0
data seg size         (kbytes, -d) unlimited
file size             (blocks, -f) unlimited
max locked memory     (kbytes, -l) unlimited
max memory size       (kbytes, -m) unlimited
open files                    (-n) 1024
pipe size          (512 bytes, -p) 8
stack size            (kbytes, -s) 8192
cpu time             (seconds, -t) unlimited
max user processes            (-u) unlimited
virtual memory        (kbytes, -v) unlimited

Thank you for your attention.
