I have had a lot of problems since the latest commits.

input: opening dvd:/dev/disk/ide/atapi/1/master/0/raw
css error: drive would not authenticate
dvd error: fatal failure in CSS

This error repeats ad infinitum but sometimes (very rarely) the disk 
manages to play.
I think it may have to do with the most recent dvd_ioctl.c changes to 
Can someone get the dvd_ioctl.c for me from the last release?
