fwiw, I've seen initramfs-tools on systems running both unstable and
sarge + backports.org kernel/udev generate broken initramfs images. In
my case it was root-on-software-raid setups both times, but still. In
both cases the problems went away when I switched to yaird, and the
initramfs images are ~1.2M instead of 5-6M.
