:)ofwboot.xcf from 1.5.1_BETA2 was unable to find boot.fs on my iBook (Dual

This is A Bad Thing.

Tsubai-san, do you have any ideas about this?  I'd really like to direct
everyone towards a simple solution ("everyone use ofwboot.xcf"), but
exceptions like this make it difficult.  Had you updated ofwboot.elf but
not ofwboot.xcf, or is Apple doing something weird on the iBook (Dual USB)?
