On i386 and amd64, anita actually expects to see a root shell # prompt
after it quits sysinst, not a login prompt.

On my i386 testbed, there have been no failures at the install stage
since February, and those were from a different cause, so whatever
the problem is, it doesn't seem to be affecting i386.  As Martin said,
the final output from a failed installation would be helpful.
