Hi, all--

A problem has been reported with the latest version of dvd+rw-tools:

"IMPORTANT NOTE! A bug was introduced in version 5.19, which manifests 
itself by inability to finalize recording, it takes forever to "flush 
cache." Apply hotfix or download patched tar-ball. If you have suffered 
from this bug and have non-finalized DVD±R media, you can use this 
snippet to "revive" it. DVD+RW media can be finalized with 
dvd+rw-format -lead-out."

The tool to fix unfinalized DVD±R disk is at:


...and ports/65861 contains the patch.  If you've encountered the 
problem described above, please give 'em a try and let me know whether 
they help.  Thanks,
