    I've noticed cpdup apparently not working properly when run from that
    script too.  I'm not sure if it is cpdup itself or if it is the
    cd9660 ISO filesystem.  Since I don't have problems using cpdup otherwise
    I am guessing that there's something in the cd9660 ISO filedsystem code
    that is causing incomplete copies to occur without generating errors
    or warnings.

    I have no had time to track down the problem myself.
