    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...)
