So I think it's definitely in the genisoimage -M code, and COULD BE
an endian issue there.
For what it proves, if anything, I tried to recreate the bug
cd <somewhere safe>
genisoimage -R tmp1/ >RR-arm-1.iso
# note: this succeeds, and then RR-arm-1.iso will loop-mount perfectly

genisoimage -M RR-arm-1.iso -C 0,0 -R tmp1/ >RR-arm-2.iso
on a PowerMac G3 running Etch, and had no errors at all. So simple
endian-ness bugs seem less likely. Complex bugs (endian or
otherwise) are still possible, of course.
