In fact, the latest mkisofs alpha (in cdrtools 1.11a31) seems to do
the right thing. The problem was nothing to do with the number of files
in the image (only about 9000, after all), but rather a large file
issue by the looks of it. I've just created an image which I'll be
asking somebody to test for me now.
