We are now in 2.4.20-preBLAH time and appears that VIA 686b
southbridge still has the same problem (and appears to be that dont
surface with anothers controllers)

Ive just burned a image (.cue/.bin) with cdrdao and my load went
nuts, up to 5. Same motherboard chipset, same general conditions.
KT133a, VIA 686b southbridge, in that case with a LG combo drive
(HL-DT-ST RW/DVD GCC-4120B), hard-disk as /dev/hda (with ReiserFS),
combo drive as /dev/hdc.

What is strange is that problem dont appears with ISO images
(cdrecord-burned). There is any already-know solution for that
problem with VIA686b IDE?


Some info about the box in question:
