Actually, there have been some complaints.  I found that doing it 
manually with mkisofs and wodim, I could write to my CD.  Doing it with 
the GUI failed 100% of the time without any error messages at all.  
Nothing on the screen as to why, nothing in /var/log/messages, just 
"Error!" in a popup.

I haven't had the time to debug the GUI, yet.
