BTW, while still acknowledging that this is a serious bug, you can
work around it easily by adding the ISO image using 'add_drive'.

There is no real need to use 'add_cdrom' in any libguestfs client code
that I'm aware of, certainly not for adding ISO images which work just
as well if they are presented as ordinary drives.
