1) The original does not need a write mode and defaults to SAO mode
but even this would not work with the defective fork.
2) There are several hints in the output that the problem
is caused by removed tests and warning messages.
Parts os the output do not look serious.
I did see many reports from people who have been completely unable
to do anything useful with the "fork", this is why I prepared
this information page:
Note that not only cdrecord is affected by the bug introduced by the
fork. The mkisofs "replacement" from the fork is also full of bugs.
