i suspected 'corrupted' indices (or, indicies not the way d-i wants
them) rather than corrputed busybox, because i know that debian-cd does
not use apt-ftparchive anymore. however, it's broken busybox then.
according to the bugreport you referenced, this seems to be a know issue
for month. how likely is it that this can be fixed with etch point
release? if not busybox can be fixed, can d-i be changed to not insist
on Packages.gz if a Packages is available?
unrelated to that, it's an extremely weird bug if the /original/ indices
are accepted, but any changed ones not.
