If you look at the strange filenames I used, that's because each of them
tests one of the backup options in k3b. There is a list of options, like
"allow ~ in name", etc (that correspond to options in mkisofs), and I
wanted to find out what happened. As a matter of fact, I did not
activate any of those options, yet the files were correctly copied. I'm
not sure why.

Interestingly, k3b initially refused to do the burn because all files
had zero bytes. I had to add one file with some bytes before it accepted
to proceed.
