/opt/schily/bin/mkisofs  -print-size dvd.iso
Setting input-charset to 'UTF-8' from locale.
mkisofs: Value too large for defined data type. File dvd.iso is too 
large for current mkisofs settings - ignoring
Total extents scheduled to be written = 174

So, Shcilly's mkisofs seems to be broken.
Strange that Schilly has not seen this problem and fixed it!

The iso file size is:
-rw-r--r-- 1 jd jd 4897970176 Mar 31 08:34 dvd.iso
