By that date I can intuit that you downloaded a full size CD image, all
of which still have the rc1 installer on them. If you had wanted to get
a newer version of the installer that contained a fix for your problem,
you should have downloaded one of the daily built netinst images. This
is fairly clearly explained on our web site:

	If you'd like something newer to help us test a future release
	of the installer, or because of hardware problems or other
	issues, try one of these daily built images which contain the
	latest available version of installer components. 

	* netinst CD image (100-150 MB) 

As far as I can see, the problem you reported is fixed in that image 
and will be fully deployed with etch.

IMHO you don't understand email conversation or motivating people very
well. Good luck with your new distribution.
