I have been able to test the new image, using the iso file directly
on a loop device, without having to burn a CD ;-)

It installs fine except that there are some missing files:
-- in tex-latexextra, the directory ltxmisc is missing
-- in tex-texbooks, no directory Books is available 

Formats cont-en jadetex and pdfjadetex fail to be built.
It seems to be because ulem.sty is missing (it's part of ltxmisc).

Sorry, Sebastian, for this bad news: while the image seems to be
slightly over 700mb, i still complain about missing files :-(

I have some questions about the permissions set in the
texmf-var directory : texmf-var itself and most of its subdirectories
are world writable, even if the varfonts feature is enabled
(fonts are created under /var/texfonts on my machine).
Any reason for this ?
