This is what i remember from two weeks ago when i thought i fixed the proble,
but it was actually another problem.

Fine with me, but them going in asap after RC1 would be nice. I wonder if they
also break x86 RAID installs, since Bastian said he encountered the bug on x86
and s390, but since nobody complained about this ...

Yeah, it was one maddening bug, which i had to debug with the box running fans
to loud (well, a bit better, since i had fancontrol, but it really needs
2.6.18 to be acceptable noise level), and with a problem that happened only in
d-i, and d-i chrooted environment.

BTW, this bug was visible in knoppix also, and some other debian-derivative
