opticalDiskTest.py patch to ignore cdrecord stderr output
This patch changes the calls to cdrecord to ignore the spurious stderr output produced by cdrecord:

Note: This version is an unofficial (modified) version with DVD support
Note: and therefore may have bugs that are not present in the original.

> patch command.py command.patch
> patch opticalDiskTest.py opticalDiskTest.patch
