In theory, yes. It makes the track longer, so it could in theory make
something large not fit. In practice, there really are some readers
which skip on audio when they see the blanks. As Joerg which ones, but
other people have agreed that it does happen.

I have noted that even with it off my recent burners don't mind running
out of data, so in most cases it won't hurt. Burning off NFS I see 7-10
underruns typically.
