mondo/mindi failure

After an upgrade to lenny, Mondo backup fails.

I get the message:
Calling MINDI to create boot+data disks
Your boot loader is GRUB and it boots from /dev/hda
Mindi failed to create your boot+data disks.
---promptpopup---1--- Fatal error. Debian kernel package kernel-image-2.6.6-1-386 not installed. Please install (one of): linux-image-2.6-486 kernel-image-2.6-386 linux-image-386. Terminating.
---promptpopup---Q--- [OK] ---
Fatal error... Failed to generate boot+data disks


My kernel is:
# uname -a
Linux alpha 2.6.26-1-686 #1 SMP Fri Mar 13 18:08:45 UTC 2009 i686 GNU/Linux

The invocation is:
mondoarchive -ONid /backup -k FAILSAFE -E /backup -p alpha


Also, I'm surprised that if this is a dependency, that apt-get wouldn't know about it and resolve. Mindi does have it's own mindi-kernel installed, I thought that should have taken care of this.

||/ Name Version Description
ii mindi-kernel 2.4.27-2sarge4 failsafe Linux kernel for Mindi/Mondo

I did read at the mondo site that one can test mindi separately. I tried that, and it runs fine, until the "Droppping Libraries" part, and then hangs. If I interrupt it, the log doesn't show anything useful except "user aborted".
