| This error appears *only* in simulated mode and it does not mean that

Thanks for the explanation!
Is this documented anywhere?
Is this a forgivable flaw in the drive or is this an expected/legal
result on a standards-conforming drive?
If it is an expected/legal result, some part of the software ought to stop
scaring innocent users with drastic-sounding messages :-)
I find the undocumented growisofs -use-the-force-luke flag intriguing.
Is there a reason not to document it?
