Same problem here, appears to happen when: ltsp-build-client...
I do actually have the complete ltsp-build-client output, unfortunatelly it's in Swedish.
I can paste it somewhere if you like.

As a sidenote, when executed the second time no message about restarting NBD-server shows up (!)
Instead this appears:
"Configuration file /etc/nbd-server/conf.d/ltsp_i386.conf already exists, no action taken."

Trying to restart NBD using:
>ltsp1-pe2600:/$ service nbd-server restart [OR]
>ltsp1-pe2600:/$ sudo /etc/init.d/nbd-server restart

.. renders:
Restarting the Network Block Device server is pretty harsh on clients still using it.
waiting 5 seconds...You have been warned!
Restarting Network Block Device server: Stopping Network Block Device server: nbd-server.

Else all good...

Sys info:
Vanilla installation except for:
* using XFS filesystem.
* DHCP-server on other machine (firewall)
* Clients set to use NBD-swap
* some tweaks for FAT-client (won't affect if turned on or of)

Original installation i386 10.04 -> 10.10 -> 11.04 -> 11.10 kernels altered to i386-PAE after memory upgrade -> 12.04.
Clean update every time using suggested methods.
Server runs fine.
