retitle -2 settings chosen from console-setup-udeb not preserved on installed system
retitle -3 Consistently fails to find ISO image on first try

Quoting Celejar (celejar@gmail.com):

Thanks for your very detailed installation report. It contains much
valuable information and I'll try a first attempt to use at least part
of it

That's the secodn time we get such report. I'm definitely not in
position to test this, but there's something broken somewhere in console-setup

Assigned to iso-scan. It would be very interesting if you could try
reproducing this and check what's displayed on 4th console after the
first failure.

This one I leave to other maintainers....

That one also. Hopefully Max will look at it in details.

Apparently this error is there for ages..:-). Reported against i-r
