This is an intermittent bug, some people get it, some don't. I'm one of
the ones that don't.

There must be something in the setup of the box running the debootstrap.

One benefit of using bugs and buildd.emdebian.org is that reportbug
gives me info that isn't normally included in mailing list queries -
that you are using unstable. Can you confirm that this is a full
unstable system and not an unstable chroot on Lenny etc.?

We need to work out what differs between your systems and mine.

I'm running a completely plain Debian unstable install with no
unexpected repositories - just debian and emdebian. I'm running
debootstrap on the normal system, not inside another chroot.

I've got a very plain /etc/fstab with no weird filesystem setups or dev
or udev mount options:

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
proc            /proc           proc    defaults        	0       0
/dev/sda1       /               ext3    noatime,errors=remount-ro 	0       1
/dev/sda5       none            swap    sw              	0       0
/dev/hda        /media/cdrom0   udf,iso9660 user,noauto 	0       0
/dev/sdb2	/mnt/emdebian	ext2	user			0	0

My desktop machine is similar.
