Package: xorriso
Version: 1.0.8.pl00-4
Severity: normal


there is really a bug with the padding and the cylinder size alignment.
It must be a regression after fixing another regression.
xorriso-1.0.4 aligns properly. But that seems to be due to a bug
that prevented padding at all, and was fixed in 1.0.6.

For proper cylinder alignment one currently has to use option -no-pad.
In this case one should urge users to avoid CD write mode TAO or
to use padsize=300k with their cdrecord compatible burn program.
(It is only CD TAO that needs padding due to the Linux Read-Ahead Bug.
 BD, DVD or CD SAO are not prone to this.)
I will now try to fix this flaw. Thanks for testing and reporting.

 Have a nice day :)
