I found it was exactly the eights directory level that had 000 
permissions. I am still not sure, why that is a problem for UDF, if it 
is non for Rockridge. Anyhow, using much more relaxed settings, I got a 
DVD that works:

mkisofs -allow-leading-dots -allow-lowercase -allow-multidot -d -D 
-iso-level 4 -l -N -r -udf -V NAME -o FILE.iso DIR/

Probably, just "-iso-level 4 -D" would have been sufficient.
