Argh. There are an awful lot of debian mailing lists. I didn't even
know this one existed.  There hasn't been a debian weekly news
mentioning this yet, and searching through the subject lines in the
archive of debian-cd says nothing about cheapbytes.

Thanks for the warning. I'm sending cheapbytes an email to confirm the
problem.  I *do* wish it was a little easier to find information on
the matter.  With luck, the fact that the problem has been noticed
should mean that they're probably shipping fixed versions now, if they
want to keep any customers.  My order's been confirmed, but not
shipped yet. I imagine (hope) this is probably why.
