Do you have a BIOS set 20 minute display timeout floating around too by any chance ?

My BIOS has no 'apparent' options. Actually it has very few options. :-(

And remember, this CD burn problem _is_ kernel specific.
I will do tests later today with older kernels and this 20 minute timeout issue
and report back.

Thats correct behaviour. The end of a CD is very low accuracy only.

OK. But (in my nievity) doesn't that make it difficult to 'dup' CDs?

ie. you couldn't do a: dd if=/dev/cdrom of=test.iso bs=2048
