It is in the batch build, while saying

Here it hung while waiting for the yes to finish before continuing
(and yes of course doesn't finish :-). I logged in and killed the yes
and then it continued:

It stops again later in the installation process for the same reason.

I am just about to leave for a vacation, so I will send pr if the
problem still exists when I came back from Lappaland after easter...
