   I've been trying to fix the problem I had, and discovered another
one with the "persistent" parameter in Lenny:

 - using "persistent" when there are two partitions, "live-rw" and
   home-rw", it only finds/mounts the first one.

 - using "persistent=nofiles" can't find none of them.

   I've made a little patch to "live-helpers" file that fix half of the
problem. When there are only one partition ("live-rw" or "home-rw") it
works Ok. If both partitions exist, mount the "live-rw" partition first
(and create the user's home inside), the next step mount the "home-rw" on
/home making user's home not accesible.
