Those are all useful bits of information that should probably be in the bug 
report.  It would be nice if you had exact package versions, but if you don't 
it still helps narrow things down a bit.

Probably the most important part of reporting a bug is giving the maintainer 
enough information to reproduce the bug on his or her system.

Again, I'm glad you were able to solve your problem.  I'm sorry you had to 
resort to using software on available in Debian.

Yes, while creating the fs and burning should be able to be done from the 
command-line, the GUI tools should work as well.  Having the use software not 
available in Debian is grounds for a bug, at least for this task.[1]

[1] It would be different if no software that Debian can distribute purports 
to handle the task.
