Does that mean that you cannot reproduce the problem?
It's quite easy, just boot the official 1.4.3. ISO in
a standard qemu host and go through the installation.
Only takes a few minutes.
However -- The one thing which is extremely annoying is
the pause during boot, when the sshd DSA host keys are
generated. It takes 29 minutes (!) on my hardware. It
does that each time you boot the ISO, and there's no
indication how long it will take (no progress display).
Hell, it doesn't even print something like "This will
take a while, please be patient ..."
