Note that you might want to try out #9 of the pre-2.0 series. There were
still some problems in the generic read handling when errors occurred, and I
hope those are finally fixed (knock wood - the code is certainly not trivial,
and I haven't been able to test). Pre-#9 also contains the SCSI fixes from
Leonard, so people who have seen problems with SCSI cd's, could you please
check this out and see if we have them more-or-less nailed now?
