 Excerpt from "-v playback,file,extra" (r25896):

 2010-08-28 18:02:36.212 OpenFile() trying DVD at /dev/dvd
 libdvdnav: Using dvdnav version svnR1215
 libdvdread: Using libdvdcss version 1.2.10 for DVD access

 libdvdread: Could not open /dev/dvd
 libdvdnav: vm: failed to open/read the DVD
 2010-08-28 18:02:36.212 Failed to open DVD device at /dev/dvd

 It works if the DVD device is "/dev/sr0".  Looks like mythfile_stat (in
 mythiowrapper) calls lstat() instead of stat()?
