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).
