I agree with you that something's amiss here; the installer should not
have happily proceeded after I was forced to skip a step that was
going to make adding packages impossible. I saved the bad cd-rw, but
at the moment I have nowhere to do the install to get you the
information you want. I'll try to set up an install on a virtual
machine ....
