This was on a J5600. Has anyone seen these same problems?

In light of this, I would suggest using initramfs-tools instead of yaird 
by default for new installations (which is already the case for other 
architectures).
Any reasons not to make that switch?

If there are no objections I would like to make this switch before the 
Beta2 release of Debian Installer, which is planned for March 1, so the 
switch would have to be made very soon.

Cheers,
