The bug was related to the fact that Debian fixed this by patching the
kernel rather than patching cdrecord, thereby making the behavior remain
broken on Linus' vanilla kernels. IMO, this is a bug that needs to be
fixed before releasing Sarge, so I am trying to determine whether it has
been fixed or whether it is still in need of the patch included in BTS.

I usually have a GPG digital signature included as an attachment.
See http://www.gnupg.org/ for info about these digital signatures.
