If I choose either of the "start a shell" options in the graphical installer, the installer effectively hangs while trying to open that shell (you can still switch to another VT though). I have committed a patch to rescue mode that suppresses the "execute a shell" options if the gtk frontend is used. I'll also document this limitation in the installation guide and suggest that users switch to VT2 or VT3 and use chroot instead. Unfortunately it is not possible anymore to add a decent informational message in the installer itself before RC2. The openvt and chvt commands are not available in the installer, but if anyone can supply a working solution to start a shell from the graphical installer, that would be most welcome. It is already a TODO item for post-Etch.
