Bug Description

Binary package hint: dvd+rw-tools

When using growisofs I found out that the option
-use-the-force-luke=break:XXXX (to set a custom layer break when burning DL DVDs) has no effect.
I searched for a fix and found the following blog with a solution (patch):

I used the patch with the latest dvd+rw-tools (version 7.1) and it works great.

Apparently the dvd+rw-tools are not developed anymore, but maybe the patch
can be included in the next package-release.

I'm attaching the patch here so we have our own copy of it, in case
upstream elects not to fix, or the webpage disappears.
