It didn't help that the broken base-config was itself a rushed fix for
an earlier broken base-config, which was itself a rushed workaround for a
hasty change in the boot-floppies, so I did even less testing on that
release than I usually manage for base-config.
We have to be aware that boot-floppies and base-config receive little or
no testing before they enter testing. I am painfully aware of that. I am
thinking about ways to do semiautomated base-config testing before I
release it, but short of a full install it is hard to be sure testing it
in a chroot or such hits all cases.
