What do you expect from using an unmaintained fork from a > 2.5 year old 
version of mkisofs?

If you decouple yourself from the original software, you get decoupled 
from bugfixes and enhancements. Note that your old version misses 
147 enhancements and bugfixes. Several dozens of bugs have been fixed that 
origin in the very early years of mkisofs (past 1993). Using old versions 
of software is never a good idea.
