And the question is: why??? SuSE comes with a cdrtools version that runs
fine. No need to download anything from an external source. Just installing
the cdrtools package from SuSE and calling "cdrecord dev=/dev/hdc ..."
works without any problems here.

You are complaining here that using some external package as replacement
for the SuSE version and additionally forcing a setting other than the
default does not work, even after a SuSE developer told you not to do
that because there are known problems with the setting you are forcing.

So what are you asking for? I guess I can find a bunch of programs that
I download from anywhere and that are not working with some distributions.
The idea of a distribution is that the packagers take care that the packages
they deliver work together. Replacing some piece with your own version
and then complaining that it does not work doesn't make any sense.
This is like replacing the "eject" on SuSE 9.1 which has been patched
to work with subfs and then complaining that your own "eject" does not
work with subfs on SuSE 9.1.
