Did you see this behavior with the GRUB rescue disc as well? Because the
installer image uses the exact same mechanism as the rescue image. However,
I have not copied these files yet:

-r--r--r--  1 glaubitz users  2623 Apr 30 23:44 .disk_label
-r--r--r--  1 glaubitz users    19 Apr 30 23:44 .disk_label.contentDetails
-r--r--r--  1 glaubitz users   245 Apr 30 23:44 SystemVersion.plist

If the GRUB rescue image does not show this problem, then we probably know
