The first number on the "." line is "5"... You indicate that this should be
"6" instead...  Would this be a more "normal" situation?

In general:
If it "should" be "6"; I wonder whether this should be considered a "copy
preventive measure" (a mild one) or maybe a CD-writer-software "bug"...

Then; should "find" stumble on this; a bug or feature? ;-)
