I've seen similar messages when xine couldn't read a disk burned in my 
stand-alone dvd recorder (happens from time to time, and I always check burns 
in xine).

On this occasion I was ripping my new CDs for playing direct on the computer.  
I tried kaudiocreator because it was already installed, and got piles of 
errors saying that it had failed.  (I discovered later that it had in fact 
succeeded!)  I've always used grip before, so that's what's installed and 
running now.

Unless someone comes up with something concrete I'm going to assume that the 
warnings are not important, and ignore them.
