Yes, I get the same using 6f.  What you will find if you scan trhough
the logs is that its actually calling requant on the same file each
time (the first or last in order or menu).

Apparantly its a bug which was old and was meant to have been fixed
(according to the author).  He recomended I do a full cleanout and
fresh download of vdr-burn...  maybe there are some old files
somewhere causing the issue..  I have not had time to do this yet, so
I've altered some settings in the bash script used when requant is
called.  My fix was very simple but i'm not at the PC to reverse
engineer and tell you ;-).
