It seems that the bug has been relocated, but not to the right program.

The problem is caused by growisofs and growisofs is known not to play well
with the DVD- standard as it has been originally written for DVD+.

Cdrecord has mature DVD- support since 11 years and will most likely fix your problem.
Please fetch a recent cdrtools source from:


compile and install (the latter as root).

then call

cdrecord blank=all -v

and later write your iso image using

cdrecord -v xxx.iso

be careful not to call "wodim" by accident....
