   |  Indeed I am still unable to reproduce it. Must be something very strange
   |  going on.
 Yes, very weird.   It is so simple to make happen...
   |  Could you just make the sysinst.core file available?
 Sure, both of them:
   |  Btw: the official builds all include debug.tgz which has all the debug
   |  symbols needed.
 Hmm - mine don't.   What's different?   I simply do [-x] [-u] [-P] release
 with MK_CONF=/dev/null
 (and settings for the obj, dest, and release dirs that suit
 my peculiar needs).   It is supposed to be as similar to
 the official builds as possible (at least when I include -x,
 I often omit that as I don't generally need it when I am
 just testing (though my source sets have extsrc.tgz
 instead of gnusrc.tgz - II build the source sets with my
 own script - variant of the normal one - as well.)
 My cd (dvd really) building differs as I add all kinds of
 other stuff (source sets, incl pkgsrc, soetimes some
 distfiles, ...) in the iso image - if I'm going to burn a dvd I
 mught as well fill it up with stuff that might be useful!
 I only mentioned that, as my build script for that is
 very old, and still uses the emulated floppy method
 of booting (or however it used to be done) so that
 the kernel boots info a MFS miniroot, rather than using
 the cd image as the root filesys, which I think is the
 more modern way.   I should update it someday...
