Thanks for that. I've examined the differences between this image and the
corresponding one for 5.0.6, and I can't find anything that would account
for the difference in behaviour. In particular, the versions of netcfg (the
component that handles the hostname) are the same, and it doesn't have a lot
of external dependencies that could affect it.
Unfortunately, without any ability to reproduce the problem, or any way to
narrow down what the difference might be, I'm afraid I can't go any further
with this bug report. Also, as Squeeze is very close to release, and you've
reported that the squeeze installer works fine, there's a limit to how much
time I'm willing to expend trying to reproduce the problem. If you have or
discover any further information that might help, please feel free to e-mail
the bug report, otherwise this will have to languish, and will be closed
once woody is no longer supported.
