I was wondering about that:

NOTE: this version of cdrecord is an inofficial (modified) release of 
      and thus may have bugs that are not present in the original version.
      Please send bug reports and support requests to 
<cdrtools at>.
      The original author should not be bothered with problems of this 

cdrecord: Warning: Running on Linux-
cdrecord: There are unsettled issues with Linux-2.5 and newer.
cdrecord: If you have unexpected problems, please try Linux-2.4 or Solaris.
Warning: Using badly designed ATAPI via /dev/hd* interface
