Yep - picking rockridge only made it work. Thanks.

I *thought* I had understood from the stuff I read that a single CD could
support multiple directory types. Is that untrue? Or is there a deficiency
in mkhybrid? (Or is it maybe just that rockridge and joliet in particular
conflict with each other in their bastardization of the 9660 format? Hmm -
or is it because Joliet doesn't support symlinks, and for some reason
mount_cd9660 is preferring Joliet over RockRidge? Enquiring minds want to
know! ;-)
