Bug Description

Cubic currently limits the ISO size to 4GB.

This limit may be increased by using "-iso-level 3" with mkisofs, as indicated in this question: https://answers.launchpad.net/cubic/+question/678949.

The maximum ISO size is now 8TB.

Cubic will no longer display an error if the generated ISO size exceeds 4GB, as long as the size is less than 8TB.

It is not clear if this change results in compatibility issues.

Fixed in trunk revision 190.
Fixed in release revision 49.
