  My father just bought a F8 DVD, but it failed the mediacheck.  It 
turns out that the vendor failed to apply zero-padding to the ISO file 
before burning, and that the failure occurs about 40 KB before the end 
of the disc, presumably due to the readahead bug having returned.  This 
had been fixed when F7 was released, but apparently is back now in both 
the updated F7 and F8 kernels.  Anyone know when this regression 
happened, and if there are plans to fix it?
