I should probably beware of carrying coals to Newcastle here, but k3b
doesn't mount an unwritten cd in the normal manner. Generally, only
written cd's should be mounted.

Since the apparent difference is the 'udf' in your fstab line, might
that be the problem?
My own line in fstab is:
/dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom auto noauto,user,exec 0 0
and it mounts by hand, or from an xwindow (kde) icon just fine,
advising me that the medium is read-only and is being mounted that
way. Humm, I *do* have a /dev/cdrom so I suppose I should change
