Switching to yaird is nice as a workaround, but debian-installer will use 
initramfs by default, so this issue should be resolved.

Is there a bug report against initramfs-tools for this?
Has anyone tried to trace the issue?

initramfs-tools is not all that hard to debug and the maintainer is very 
responsive. Please somebody work with him to resolve this issue in time 
for Etch...
