blank=all only works in isolation

Seven years, fifteen different computers,
twenty-five different Linux distributions,
multiple types of cd burner (SCSI, IDE,
USB), and every version of cdrecord and
cdrtools I could find (both supplied with
the distribution and compiled by myself).

cdrecord -vv dev=1,0 blank=all /path/to/some.iso

NEVER works. I typically get something like:

Performing OPC...
Blanking entire disk
cdrecord: faio_wait_on_buffer for writer timed out.
Blanking time: 1183.496s
BURN-Free is OFF.
Performing OPC...
Starting new track at sector: 0
Track 01:    3 of  638 MB written (fifo  23%) [buf 100%]  
4.2x.cdrecord: faio_wait_on_buffer for reader timed out.
Writing  time:  255.218s
Min drive buffer fill was 100%
cdrecord: fifo had 64 puts and 64 gets.
cdrecord: fifo was 1 times empty and 0 times full, min fill
was 0%.

On the other hand, just splitting this
up into two commands:

cdrecord -vv dev=1,0 blank=all
cdrecord -vv dev=1,0 /path/to/some.iso

ALWAYS works (no errors in either the
blanking or the writing).

The man page seems to indicate that the
first form should work, but it doesn't
(at least for me). What have I missed?
