This patch I will use...
I think your patch do not safe functionality of autorun program.
You can not pass the device parameter to external program if you installed 2 CD
ROM drivers into your PC and want to use second CD ROM for listen audioCD.
I propose to use additional option (as I wrote in my patch).
$ autorun --help
Usage: autorun [OPTION...] [cdromdevices...]
Command strings are parsed and %P% is replaced by the mountpoint path.
%D% is replaced by the device path. After that the command string will be
executed using /bin/sh -c "command string".
This now works also for
$ autorun --cdplayer="myaudiocdplayer %D%"
