can confirm. Haven't burnt a disc in a while, so not sure when the bug was introduced, but I'm using GNOME & GDM.
Here's the relevant info from gdm

maybe this bug was introduced in 2.32.0-3 after i fixed another crasher. please use abs and remove the patch and note if is fixed or not.

if is fixed, then i suggest to submit here a new comment with this backtrace

Ioni :
building from ABS without fix_crasher.patch does nothing to fix issue here.
Just a FWIW

Regarding 2.32.1, I've been able to burn and erase a CDRW. I think you can close this bug report.

God I'm getting bad at these "Me too" post but..

2.32.1 works flawlessly blanking/erasing here also.
