It isn't a problem of the recorder program. But some drives wont read
the very end of a disc unless there are some pad blocks at the end.
Thus, you should always use the cdrecord pad option.

SG_IO or CDROM_SEND_PACKET? The latter should never have been merged in
cdrecord, and you should never use it. If it is using SG_IO, I'm very
interested in knowing more. vmstat 1 while doing the burn would be
interesting, just for 10 seconds where you see the problem.

Don't remember, sorry :)
