I know it is of no direct help to you, but I have successfully burned
several DVD+R DL disks using K3b.  It 'just worked' without any fiddling
or anything.  I also successfully use DVD-R single layer and DVD+RW single layer

The drive is a Pioneer DVR-115D and the disks I have been using are
branded 'Zerodefex'.  The disks are read fine by Kaffeine and Movie
Player as well as a domestic standalone DVD player.

To answer your question, it seems Linux really does like DVD+R disks
after all.
