[colug-432] Strange Burning Behavior

I'm running Debian Lenny.  I've regularly backed up my 3.1 Gb CVS  
repository to DVD.  About two months ago the backups started failing.

What I've discovered is really strange.  I did some testing and found  
that I can record parts of the repository to CD or DVD.  I have  
isolated a small chunk (~200 Mb) of the repository that I can record  
to CD but not to DVD.  I get an unhelpful error message and nothing  
show up in the system logs.

I've rsynced the repository to another box and the behavior is the same.

I have been using the default gnome disk burning app.  I've also tried  
Brasero and gnomebaker.  No joy in mudville.

Any suggestions?  I'd hate to keep going through blank DVDs trying to  
isolate the problem file.
