popcon does not include all avalaible packages.  I think you will find
that there is about 1 GB of packages which will not be included on the DVD
if COMPLETE=1 is switched off and everything else (inc popcon) is left as
is.  I would suggest that building the DVD(s) with COMPLETE=1 and
discarding the second image.
