Thanks for proving me right, and for the link to a very interesting
piece of software.

What is cdrecord-ProDVD? If it's just a CLI DVD-recorder, have you tried
growisofs from dvd+rw-tools? It is insanely easy to use, and works
extremely well. However, I highly recommend you use the latest version
(compile from source if necessary), especially if you have a Pioneer
drive (as I do). Other drives are extremely likely to work with whatever
your current distro version has.

Free as in speech...
