Bug Description

The preparer id indicates the Ubuntu images are being built with xorriso 1.2.4. It has been confirmed by the author of xorriso that it should be fixed in xorriso 1.3.2 https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=740504

$ gdisk trusty-desktop-amd64.iso
GPT fdisk (gdisk) version 0.8.8

Partition table scan:
  MBR: MBR only
  BSD: not present
  APM: not present
  GPT: not present

***************************************************************
Found invalid GPT and valid MBR; converting MBR to GPT format
in memory. THIS OPERATION IS POTENTIALLY DESTRUCTIVE! Exit by
typing 'q' if you don't want to convert your MBR partitions
to GPT format!
