Unless I did see the image that caused the problem, I am not willing to call
this a mkisofs problem.

Note that the OP did not use an official mkisofs version but a RedHat hack and
it may be that the image is just broken. The problem with RR is that it is hard
to add workarounds for any defect in ISO images that are going to be used 
to be continued with multi session.
