Let me try to comment your junk...... I am sorry but you just verified that
you are nothing but a moron that has no clue and that is not even willing to do
a comparison test with the real cdrecord because you are in fear that you might
see immediately where the differences are :-(

Guess what this is?
It is a bug made by SuSE! The original cdrecord will not spit out this junk
for useless conditions as for command lines like 'cdrecord -version'.
The string "ZY$:" in addition is caused by SuSE too, because they are using

As I did already write several times: The DVD patch that SuSE is using is
ignoring the data structures of cdrecord and thus definitely does not work
correctly even for CDs. The text "may have bugs" is inapropriate as the SuSE
binary definitely has bugs.
Did you ever try out whether SuSEs junkware gives warnings for not being root when
called with things different from cdrecord -version? I did never see the
setpriority warnings in the mail I receive from unsatisfied SuSE customers.
I do not judge from things you send here but from quoted text I receive from
SuSE customers. But maybe the reason why I get mail from unsartisfied SuSE
customers is that http://www.suse.de/feedback just a black hole?
Why is there no similar mail from Debian users? Debian behaves different:
1) They (Debian) give support
2) They do not apply the defective DVD patch by default but let it apply
theyr users if they like to compile and try it out.
3) If _they_ (Debian) have problems, they contact me for help.
PS: as a nice side effect of Linux-2.6.8, SuSEs broken version will stop
working as they try to avoid to be root which is now definitely needed ,-)
