If you look at the cdrecord -minfo output, you see better
how the media looks:

There is one closed session (from the reports from the OP,
this has not been closed by wodim but by a "cdrecord -fix"

The disk has not been closed to prevent appending further data and 
for this reason, there is one "invisible" session.

Unfortunately the OP is not interested in help and does not send the
requested informaton, but I would guess that Mac OS X could read the
medium using "readcd f=somefile". I would guess that there is a bug
in Mac OS X "multi session" handling. This is something where only Apple could 

Anyway: cdrecord sucessfully "fixed" the first session on the medium.
If the OP did use cdrecord _instead_ of wodim for all his work, there
was no problem as cdrecord does not create multi-border disks by default.
