Not being familiar with flyisofs i think that your growisofs
is not fed via stdin but by an inexhaustible source of 0-bytes.
To pipe stdin to my pseudo scsi burner, i use 
  -Z /dev/sr0=/proc/self/fd/0

Andy and Paul rather propose /dev/dvd=/dev/fd/0 .

Can it be you developed your pipe from Paul's example
at http://www.serice.net/shunt/ ?

shunt -c "sleep 4 ; tar -cf - . | gzip -c | gpg -c" \
       + "flyisofs mbc=2295104 fbc=350000 \
          | { if ! growisofs -speed=1 -Z /dev/dvd=/dev/zero ; then \
                  growisofs -Z /dev/dvd=/dev/fd/0 ;\
              fi ; }"

If i get him right, this first /dev/dvd=/dev/zero is supposed to fail
and then the second growisofs run with  /dev/dvd=/dev/fd/0   is the
one which shall do the work.

Have a nice day :)
