if you can consider netbooting, maybe
may help to get a working wheezy installation - that was my last
installation (when I still hoped debian will fix the arch).

Thanks, noted but I'm not optimistic that my workload permits much investigation particularly since the machine most likely to help is now defunct.

I had no end of problems about 18 months ago trying to find a SPARC/Linux
later than Lenny which was even half-way reliable, and that was a large part
of our eventual decision to abandon the architecture.

What Hardware are you running ? The wheezy kernel seems not to be
so bad on my Enterprise/Fire class systems.

At the time, V880. But was prepared to try various other systems in the hope of finding something that would install.

The impression I got was that the developers were doing dist-upgrades etc., but were rarely checking the CD image. The bug you cite would appear to stem from the same shortcoming.
