"BOOT FAILED!" with a live-rw partition (ext2 and ext3 tested)

I get

Remounting /dev/sdb2 ro on /cow failed

and a prompt (initramfs) when trying to boot with "persistent" and a
partition named "live-rw".

cat /live.log gives

mount: mounting /dev/sdb2 on /cow failed: Device or resource busy

the list of mounts includes

/root (aufs)
/root/live (tmpfs)

So it seems some script is trying to mount /cow twice. Just exiting
the shell with Ctrl-d (twice) works, and then the boot goes well. This
is a bit annoying of course.

Kind regards,
