Have you reported this to the upstream mkisofs maintainer as well?  If so,
what were his comments on it?
Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2002-06-01 05:29:59 EDT
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.
