Description of problem:
When running mkisfs sometimes you might get error such as:

    Unknown file type (unallocated) /some/path/.. - ignoring and continuing.

To reliably reproduce this bug you need to create a directory such that the ".." directory entry preceeds the "." directory entry when opendir()/readdir() runs. Quite frankly I don't know how you can go about achieving this. All I know is that I have one such directory and mkisofs code depends on it discovering the "." entry before the ".." entry (because when mkisofs encounters the ".." entry it switches its lstatbuf with that which was saved from the "." entry - see mkisofs/tree.c).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
mkisofs-2.01.1-9.0.FC4.1  cdrtools-2.01.1-9.0.FC4.1

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create directory with ".." having slot before "." entry
2.mkisofs -o /dev/null /some/path

Actual Results:  Unknown file type (unallocated) /u/backup.monthly/.. - ignoring and continuing.

Expected Results:  No output
