builtin_dd: 198656*2KB out @ average 3.8x1385KBps
:-( write failed: Resource temporarily unavailable 

Please have a look at
I naively speculate that this bug /may/ have a solution similar to

That is, have growisofs keep trying even when it gets "Resource temporarily
unavailable" messages during the burn and not only at the end, when closing the
session. But hey, I don't know the first thing about how growisofs works. Hence
-> "speculation".

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Insert blank DVD
2. growisofs ... completes successfully
3. Eject completely readable and useful DVD.
4. hdparm -d1 /dev/hdd # (turn DMA back on for the DVD drive)

5. Repeat steps 1-4 2 more times

6. Insert blank DVD
7. growisofs ... fails as described above -> brand new coaster
8. hdparm -d1 /dev/hdd # (turn DMA back on for the DVD drive)

9. Insert blank DVD
A. growisofs ... fails as described above -> brand new coaster
B. hdparm -d1 /dev/hdd # (turn DMA back on for the DVD drive)

Actual Results:  
I ended up with 3 usable DVDs and 2 beverage coasters.

Expected Results:  
I should have ended up with 5 usable DVDs and 0 beverage coasters.
