So tested further: I patched the very last byts of the image and these
are my findings:

In DAO mode, the complete image is actually written, but the writer is
not able to read it out! The last 4096 bytes are not read. I put the
CD-RW into my DVD-ROM, and it reads it out completely.

So: Is cdrecord/cdrdao making something wrong (yes, I know I can use
-pad, but I want an *identical copy*) or has the kernel ATAPI reading
routine a bug? (Or has my drive a bug???? Well, I need to read the disc
out in windows I guess...)
