Be careful: Debian publishes a bastardized version of cdrtools.
Most problems go away once you convert to the official programs.

There seems to be no open source "official program."

Looks like you missunderstood OpenSource and forks.

Even for Open Source, there is an Author or a group of authors.
The version that comes from the Copyrightholder is the official one.

In this case there is no such official one, the "official" growisofs doesn't do CD, the "official" cdrecord doesn't do DVD. So neither of them are open source programs which do CD *and* DVD. There are patched versions of cdrecord which do both, and there seems to be no other similar program which is available as open source and does both CD and DVD.

WHen there's only one choice people choose it every time.
