Mmm. I cannot reproduce this bug with the official FAI CD using
Debian and 4.3.1+wheezy1. But the important change was done in FAI 4.2
IMO after looking at the code and the git log. Please check the FAI
version inside your nfsroot, which is used during installation, which
may differ from the version you have installed on your install server.
