It flatly refuses:
  :-( /dev/sr0: media is not recognized as recordable DVD: A

The growisofs runs were surely with DVD or BD.

I will try that tomorrow.

I tried. Regardless whether the priority of growisofs was a higher
or a lower number, it always used libburn.

This i did not try yet.

There is this report that the 50-percent-bug started with version
2.32.1 and was not present in 2.32.0. Looks like neat bi-section work.

But the reporters of this bug ticket here quite surely suffer from
a different problem.
The youngest report of Alain Rpnpif looks much like works-with-wodim-
but-not-with-libburn reports which finally turned out to be about
CD SAO and CD TAO. Here it is works-with-libburn-but-not-with-libburn.
Even more reason to suspect different burn parameters.
Such effects only show up when drive and media are balancing on
the edge of failure anyway.

I will soon upload a GNU xorriso development snapshot which allows
the user to choose between TAO and SAO. So we don't have to introduce
cdrskin here.

Have a nice day :)
