There are known-issues with the integrity check not working properly,
depending on how you burn the CDs. If I understand correctly, if you
"pad" the CD (ie. use the -pad option with cdrecord) it will work 

I'm probably just going to turn off integrity checking by default...

I'm still fighting with this one. I just uploaded new ISOs that are
built in a slightly different way, crossing my fingers that it solves
the problem...
