Then this is a bug. The md5sum.txt file in the root of the iso should have
been recalculated after the addition of the extra files, or, if it is
impossible to know the checksum before writing the iso, the md5sum.txt file
should be grepped with -v isolinux.bin before writing it. Leaving a wrong
checksum in the file is confusing indicating an error where there may not
be one.
