This is why you are happy with buggy software from 2004 shipped by redhat when 
there is software with no known bugs?

Redhat had more than 100 bugs filed against the "cdrtools" version they ship. 
All these bugs could be avoided by upgrading to a recent original version.
Redhat closed these unfixed bugs instead of doing it's homework that would 
result in updated versions.

So it seems that redhat doesn't care about bug reports.
