Bug Description

Making a DVD Video ISO from the Porcupine Tree "Anesthetize" DVD Audio/Video the same way as many other successful ISOs from either files created by "dvdbackup --mirror" or automounted consistently fails with "Implementation botch. Video pad for file VIDEO_TS.BUP is -1". The DVD plays fine in any player I've tried.

Using "-no-pad" makes no difference.

$ ls Pt\ Anesthetize/VIDEO_TS/
VIDEO_TS.BUP VTS_01_0.BUP VTS_01_0.VOB VTS_01_2.VOB VTS_01_4.VOB VTS_01_6.VOB
VIDEO_TS.IFO VTS_01_0.IFO VTS_01_1.VOB VTS_01_3.VOB VTS_01_5.VOB VTS_01_7.VOB

$ mkisofs -dvd-video -output $ISO/"$Name".iso $TMP/"$Disc"
I: -input-charset not specified, using utf-8 (detected in locale settings)
genisoimage: Implementation botch. Video pad for file VIDEO_TS.BUP is -1
genisoimage: Either the *.IFO file is bad or you found a genisoimage bug.

$ mkisofs -dvd-video -output $ISO/"$Name".iso /media/ajc/PT_ANESTHETIZE
I: -input-charset not specified, using utf-8 (detected in locale settings)
genisoimage: Implementation botch. Video pad for file VIDEO_TS.BUP is -1
genisoimage: Either the *.IFO file is bad or you found a genisoimage bug.

You might try the following as a work-around:

Open your dvd directory (created by dvdbackup) with pgcedit (a Windows program)
Go to the Title menu, and select 'rebuild all time maps of dvd'
Save
Move the PgcEdit_backup directory in VIDEO_TS to someplace else
Re-try your previously failed mkisofs
