This was about a *netboot* image, which has *NOTHING* at all to do with CD
It has been known for ages that the D-I testing images are broken. They got
broken by all the ABI changes after the Lenny release that were (rightly)
allowed to migrate to testing. They get more and more broken with every
udeb migration to testing.
The only way to fix them is by doing timely releases. And then ensuring
that they stay working by tightly regulating what udebs migrate to
