mkisofs strangeness

hi there.

i'm using mkisofs 2.01.01a72 (from the ports dir) with the following switches
to produce an iso image:

mkisofs -iso-level 3 -r -J -input-charset ISO-8859-15 -joliet-long -V "XYZ" -o
~/image.iso filename

i've been using mkisofs this way for years. however suddenly instead of
creating an iso with just the file i specified the iso now contains the same
file twice. i checked and both files have the same inode.

this only occurs when the file is > 4GB.

i'm running CURRENT/amd64 (r203118).
