if $file is a file that contains something like:
But has around 126000 lines....the files are very small and all together make an
iso around 600MB. This used to work, but I cannot tell you where/when it failed.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create an iso as specified above
Actual Results: mkisofs will run forever but never output an iso.
Expected Results: Expected it to create an iso.
Have you reported this to the upstream mkisofs maintainer as well? If so,
what were his comments on it?
Oops, hit submit too early...
If it really is an mkisofs bug, you definitely should report it to the
upstream maintainer if you haven't already.
In order for me to look into this at all, I need a complete easily
reproduceable test case with full details. Can you run strace and ltrace
on mkisofs and gather debugging data?
The more details that are provided, the more chance that it can be resolved,
if it is an actual bug, and not just a flaw in your process.
