Thanks for the nudge -- the thing I'd not got around to was checking
that the test also fails with the unpatched daily .iso -- which can now
be seen here:

whereas this is it succeeding:

I've also run a few other tests by hand, but there are of course
countless scenarios that I've not explored.

So, I think the fix ready for release.


  Are you OK with me including these patches, and releasing the two
  packages (rootskel, debian-installer-utils)?

Cheers, Phil.
