Hang Mounting HFS CDROM with 2.4.3 final kernel

With a BenH 2.4.3 final kernel, if I do:
mount -t hfs /dev/cdrom /mnt
the system locks up solid (mouse stops moving and can't switch to
a virtual console) with no error messages (I also tried it from a
virtual console but no error messages there either). The only
recourse is to hit the reset button to power cycle the machine.
This is using the built-in DVD ROM drive on a dual G4 (but only
running a UP kernel). I can mount an HFS disk without any problem.
This isn't actually a major issue to me personally (at least at
the moment), but I thought I should go ahead and report it. I
discovered it because I was trying to get the MacOS ROM file from
my MacOS 9.0.4 CDROM for use with MOL.
