First of all, thanks for reporting this. You've hit a bug that most people would not hit because it
only affects 'net' image types, so your report is valuable. By the same token, it does not justify
'grave' severity.


    makes the package in question unusable or mostly so, or causes data loss, or introduces a
security hole allowing access to the accounts of users who use the package.
    a bug which has a major effect on the usability of a package, without rendering it completely
unusable to everyone.

The bug falls in the latter category, not the former.

To help improve the quality of your bug reports in future, please also read:


and in particular:


Rebuilding a base image with no customizations is a valuable debugging tool to help set the priority
of your bug at the time you file it, as it will tell you quickly if it makes live-build "unusable or
mostly so" or is something specific to your configuration.

Thanks again for your report,
