Aha. And this is why you shouldn't second-guess the developers and tell
us why something is broken in a bug report (or if you do, make sure you
at least report the presenting symptom first!)

Right. Well, this *may* be fixed in git. I'm not certain about this and
haven't yet produced a working usb-hdd wheezy image out of git so it's
hard for me to tell. We should just keep this bug on the books, then,
until we're certain it is taken care of. I've running out of available
time to test for the moment and will get back to this when I can.
