Problem is: it works perfectly here for me using the daily image you linked
to on two systems: in VirtualBox and my (oldish) Toshiba laptop.
Also, when I try your workaround ...

... I get rather different behavior than you describe. I don't get an
"Invalid or corrupt kernel image" error, and also no "boot:" prompt.
Instead, after a delay of a few seconds, the installer gets booted
So we need to find out why it works so differently for you. I don't think
it's a D-I issue as nothing has changed, and I'd like to rule out that
it's not a local configuration issue before reassigning to syslinux.
I'd really like to see the log from the tftp daemon with verbose option
