Broken drives according to the bug:

'PLEXTOR ' 'DVDR   PX-755A  ' '1.02'
'PLEXTOR ' 'CD-R   PX-W2410A' '1.04
NEC 3500A.
SCSI PlexWriter CDRW
Plextor 716A
PlexWriter CD-R PX-W4012A
plextor cd-r px-w4824a

There's a clear pattern with regards to the Plextor drives, however we also see
a number of other brands being knocked out by this. I would really love to know how
widespread this bug is.

This also makes me wonder which drive I should buy to replace my lovely Plextor drive
while I wait for this bug to go away - setting cdrecord suid does not seem to please
nautilus-cd-burner in my case and I'd really love to burn DVDs in a non-ancient way.
