The burn went fine, and k3b ejected the CD, then sucked it back in
again for the verification stage. At that point k3b started spewing
lots of errors to the terminal, things like
"/dev/hdd: READ 10
"Failed to init HAL context!"
repeated many times.
How annoying! k3b has added a new dependency on hal, and although it can burn a CD just fine, without hal it then forgets where the CD drive was so it can read the CD back in to verify it.
dd /dev/cdrw | md5sum worked fine to verify
that the burn was correct. I guess it's time to investigate other
CD burning programs.
