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
