Fedora 11 snapshot 1 live CD destroys its CD-RW boot media

I burned Fedora 11 snapshot 1 to a CD-RW and tried it in my Lenovo 3000
N200 laptop.  Nice to see the Plymouth graphic, but there the niceness
ends.  Screen goes blank and the system becomes totally unresponsive.
Only recourse is a hard power-off.  I then find that the CD-RW has
become unreadable even in the machine that wrote it.  The hard drive in
the laptop is, fortunately, still intact.

Repeated the experiment, booting without "quiet" and "rhgb".  Same
lockup.  The CD-RW is again unreadable.  The last "normal" messages
during the non-graphical boot were:

   /bin/mknod: `/dev/loop0': File exists
   /bin/mknod: `/dev/loop7': File exists

After a long pause I see:

   udevadm settle - timeout of 180 seconds reached, the event queue contains:
     /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1c.1/0000:04:00.0/ieee80211/phy0 (1534)
     /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1c.1/0000:04:00.0/ieee80211/phy0 (1531)
     /sys/devices/virtual/net/lo (1411)
   Wait timeout. Will continue in the background.             [FAILED]

Nothing further.  I find that the system _will_ eventually respond to
Ctl-Alt-Del.  It just takes 15 minutes (yes, _minutes_) to reboot.

If I use a CD-R instead of CD-RW, the live CD boots just fine.  Is the
CD-RW being treated like a writable disk somewhere?

Bugzilla, you ask?  I have no idea what component to report this against.

Bob Nichols     "NOSPAM" is really part of my email address.
                Do NOT delete it.
