I haven't used k3b for a while but I do have problems with kscd, 
kaudiocreator, and amarok CD playing.

I'm running -stable from Feb 26 and latest kde and CD contents are only 
properly seen if you first insert the cd, then wait, and then choose the app 
from the "hal" menu (which takes several seconds to pop up). But even then 
ripping seems to deadlock, it just hangs and does nothing after you queue and 
start, and kscd/amarok don't play anything. Amarok merely shows the titles 
briefly. Both with self-made CDs and  official audio CDs. It's possible that 
my DVD player/recorder is just dying but I'm afraid we're having a more 
general regression here.
