Right, yeah. I just meant "does dbootstrap start with the other flavours", but
from what John Robinson says the answer is no.

It's pretty simple. Just gunzip one of the root images, mount it with loopback,
and chroot into that place.
I ran up dbootstrap under catchsegv and it seems to be crashing inside malloc
somewhere. I have a vague feeling that last time this happened to me it was
because I had some kind of UTF8/non-UTF8 library mixup leading to heap
corruption. Can you check that you don't have any trace of non-UTF8 libslang,
libnewt or anything like that on your system?
