There was a bug I introduced in the debian-cd code recently. During
CD/DVD creation, we attempt to fill the temporary tree up until the
point where it's *just* too large, then roll back and remove the last
package added. I had just been working on that part of the code and
broken the function that removed the last Packages file entry: instead
of deleting the whole entry, it would now just delete the

  "Package: foo" 

line at the start of it. I've just committed a fix into debian-cd svn
that solves the problem. Thanks for your report!
