Thanks a lot Enrico!

Yeah, it's not an ideal situation. The issue is, the problem occurs
only on a couple of machines anyways, too little for the libburn devs
to pinpoint the problem so far. I had hoped that maybe with an xfburn
release out we would get more bug reports, but so far this hasn't
On the other hand, I don't want to make it extremely annoying for
someone with this bug to use xfburn, so I need to have some way to
disable the warning (and I personally don't like warnings that only
get displayed once and then never again without having the ability to
enable the warning again). I'll think about it, and maybe find some
other way to achieve this, given that noone else has told us they are
having problems with the speed list bug.

Yes, that's probably true. I'll have a look at it soon.
