It is a side effect of udf support in MBR support routines; tsutsui and
reinoud had a discussion about it some time ago (with a patch supposed
to fix it from tsutsui), but it got not commited yet.

The disklabel probably shows up as something like:

4 partitions:
#        size    offset     fstype [fsize bsize cpg/sgs]
d:    161664         0        UDF                     # (Cyl.      0 -   1616

but it actually is a ISO9660 file system. Workaround is using cd0d as root
