Description of problem:
With version 2.01a17 of cdrecord, it changed how its version string gets
reported. xcdroast attempts to check the version of cdrecord to make sure that
all its features are supported before running. With the packages for 2.01a19
installed from updates, xcdroast can't parse the new version string, and halts
with an error message when trying to load.
One can force it to load by disabling version checking with the '-n' flag, but
this also disables features like on-the-fly audio support that depend on
features in later version of cdrecord.
The xcdroast webpage has a comment about this problem:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:

"** WARNING **: Invalid cdrecord version Clone found.
Expecting at least version 1.11a34
Start xcdroast with the -n option to override (not recommended!)"
Expected Results: xcdroast loads normally
