I've used

mkisofs -r -R -joliet-long -D \
	-V ctods-v$Vers -A $Vers -copyright isolinux/copyright \
	-nobak \
	-b isolinux/isolinux.bin -c isolinux/boot.cat \
	-no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table \
	-output /mnt/hdb4/tmp/$Ziel -v

isohybrid /mnt/hdb4/tmp/$Ziel


I'll try your options (in some hours - here it's now 6 o'clock am).
