Well, I think the problem can also be reproduced outside a debian-installer environment (getting linux-image-2.6.12-1-386 (2.6.12-2) out of the archives and running 'ip route add' should reproduce it), but I've seen no other commands than 'ip route add' fail and that does require root... Unfortunately I have hardly any C background and feel I've already passed the limits of what I can do (a lot of the info was gathered with help of joeyh and waldi). Maybe the best thing would be to work together with the kernel team on this issue. Hmm. waldi just pointed me at #325670 on IRC. Looks like it may be related.
