*** Its a conflict in cdrecord... I have the CDs to prove it...
*** I can burn this little 8MB directory of files all day long...
*** but when I mix it with other file types the burn ALWAYS fails.
*** Thank you for your help. You know a lot about cdrecord...
*** but obviously you have never seen this particular problem

*** I need to tell the CDRECORD authors about it... they may
*** have fixed it in some later version.
