You are of course lying...

Well, I have a private mail exhange that proves my claim.

Come back to reality: Cdrecord from Debian does not work correctly _because_
of the broken patches.

Try to understand that the fact that it _may_ work under certain conditions
does not make it work for all cases and with all drives.

The Linux Kernel people decided to filter away important SCSI commands I need
with cdrtools.

The Debian patches do nothing but to _hide_ the warnings, cdrecord and other
programs from the cdrtools emit in order to inform the user that "something 
went wrong".

My current version of cdrtools on the other side include a _solution_ for the
problem caused by the Linux Kernel folks (incompatibly changing interfaces).
