Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: icedax

Icedax is (almost) totally broken and crippled so much that it is
absolutely unusable!

1. "icedax --devices" (recommended command for probing devices) returns a segmentation fault
2. "icedax -scanbus" works, but when you then try to actually read the CD information with the gathered information (either "icedax -J dev=x,y,0" or "icedax -J -D x,y,0") you get a little surprise. A nice infinite loop saying:
Unable to open this SCSI ID. Trying to map to old ATA syntax.This workaround will disappear in the near future. Fix your configuration. 

"Original" cdda2wav OR icedax versions of another distribution work
perfectly on the same machine (later case with another distro however).
Trying to read the CD by guessing the device using the "icedax -J -D
/dev/cdrom3" works.

Devices are all ATA type.

Package is regular "icedax" found in Synaptic for Hardy Heron (i586).
