Ahh, I didn't noticed this bug. But it shows the way Joerg is
discussing with Linux guys everywhere.

IMHO we have to have a GPL'd package. But at the moment I haven't
any clue which alternative we have? Joerg is very sensible and for
me it is not easy to follow the discussion between Joerg and Blade,
but in summary no one gets sensible for the arguments of the
other one.  Thats not a good assumption to clarify and satisfy both

BTW, the cdrtools are very good ones, to give users very easy
intuition to burn, create ISO's or grab ogg's ion both command line
and gui frontends  :)


  Numeric stability is probably not all that 
  important when you're guessing;-)
