Booting from USB DVD broken? (FC5T3)

I seem to remember someone posting to the list regarding problems with
installing from a USB interfaced DVD reader/writer. I could not find the
previous post. I did however find the problem when attempting to install
FC5T3 on two different SBC systems using a Memorex DVD reader/writer.
I am able to install the FC5T2 installation from DVD. I checked the
burned DVD using the USB DVD recorder/player and it passed the media test.
The FC5T5 install fails in both GUI and text modes. FC5T2 installs fine
on the same computers and with the same DVD device and brand of blank
DVD's used for the burn.
I filed a bug report but I thought I'd ask if others are having similar
failures and what boot options could be issued to bypass the recently
introduced error, if any workarounds available.
