I don't understand what this means in practical terms. Could you 
elaborate? Does it only affect the installer or installed systems too?
Any way to work around it?
Is this a new issue or an existing one? Is it something to include in the 
release notes for Etch too?

AFAIK this was already included in the RN for Sarge and is still included 
in the draft for Etch, so I don't think this needs to be repeated.

I would say yes, but please do so ASAP. The changes to debian-cd should 
only be made when we start preparing RC2 unless they can be done in such 
a way that they don't break weekly builds for RC1.
