Hi,

I followed Ludo's call for testing the installer. I built an installer
image from commit da76518. I couldn't find anything installer related on
master branch since then. You can found the image here:

I'm testing in the Hetzner "Cloud", so basically in a VM with
VGA/Display-output over HTTP. Everything is smooth until I click "Edit"
at the end. I add some stuff (vim, screen packages) to the config.scm in
nano, save it and then I click on "OK". Instead of the starting the
actual installation, I get back to the very beginning of the
installation proccess (choose locale).

You can't do the same again as the hard disk doesn't show up in the
partitioner anymore.

If I don't edit the config.scm, the installation process succeeds and
the installed system is usable as expected.

I believe commit 48659aa22170a252c9b2e60f16fbe9f83a6deba4 fixes it.

Thanks,

I built an installation image with the patch and can confirm that the
issue is really fixed. Thank you Ludo!
