Please do.  If you can reproduce this with a smaller CD Image, this would be
even better.  Another thing to test: "loop" mount the CD image:

settrans /cdrom /hurd/isofs /root/mycdimage

And see if that crashes it as well.  If yes, it is a bug in isofs we can
probably find very fast.

Some more tests: Run the script with "sh -x".  Have another script with the
name x-system.sh (other content).

Also, if it is an isofs problem, how do you generate the images (what
extensions enabled etc).
