Bug#552067: Install process "forgets" the CD if left alone for long time

Package: debian-installer
Version: 20090123lenny4


I've been with Debian for many,many years. Now I am trying to install 5.03 on a number of computers using cd image http://cdimage.debian.org/debian-cd/5.0.3/i386/iso-cd/debian-503-i386-netinst.iso

If install goes quickly, then it appears to be OK. However, if there is large file system is being created (e.g. took 1/2 hour to create encrypted one), or I just leave install unattended for some time, then install process "forgets" that CD is in the drive. Error message can be "cannot figure out how to install base system" or "please insert the disk labeled" - asking for the very same disk that is IN THE CDdrive at the moment.

One more detail is that CDdrive is external, connected via USB.

When I got those messages, I switched consoles and made sure that /cdrom/ is still readable and mounted properly.
