About the debug option, make sure you're using latest live-helper and
live-initramfs packages : the 'debug' behaviour has changed, and now
debug output is also sent to stdout (I use debug=whatyouwant as kernel
command line parameter, but I think 'debug' lonely should be enough).

About ipconfig, I'm experiencing the same problem : if it fails, you
can't do anything but reboot...
