Generally, I gave up on asking k3b to verify anything.  Why?  Because when its 
about to do the verify read, it ejects the disk and immediately pulls it back 
in.  Then it waits for the disk to be recognized by the drive NOT!  At that 
point it will kick out from the error, no disk in drive.  It would be nice if 
it would then ask you to put the disk back in the drive and click proceed 
when you have pushed the drawer closed again and given the drive time to 
recognize the disk as evidenced that the activity led has stopped blinking.

ISTR I even filed a bz on that 2, maybe 3 years ago, so far back up the log I 
expect the bz server has been wiped.  I sure don't recall the bz number.  And 
it was never acknowledged either.

k3b is a heck of a good proggy, and I fail to see why that hasn't been fixed 
years ago.  New eye candy, re-arrange the menu's etc has been done 2 or 3 
times now, but a simple lack of a time delay bug is too much trouble to fix I 
guess.
