If you used woody silo and woody mkisofs, then you are good to go.

How the hell do you expect to build woody CD's if you are using shit
from unstable to build it? It's even more ludicrous for you to expect
that to work. Woody CD's should build from woody. How can you expect
that things don't change across over a year of development?

I'm not taking any blame or guilt from your problems. You caused your
own headache.
