Then the http://www.debian.org/devel/debian-installer web page needs
to be updated to reflect that.  Not everyone has time to follow the
high-volume low-signal debian-boot mailing list.

Given that this critcal bug was fixed over a month ago, I don't see
any excuse for continuing to distribute the known broken version.

As I reported in bug 248954, this was fixed in the sid images over a
month ago.  Hopfully it hasn't reverted.

Not until the fix is in sarge.  I am tagging it sarge however.
