Could it be that your network settup is causing this issue, because there where installations of the builds you encounter (that have other problems), that do not show this.

Can you test a direct install with simple cd?

The machines in question are in the magners lab in the lexington office, and I'm not sure they have CD-ROM drives, so I can't test a CD install at the moment. If there are other parameters I can try for the NFS install, I'd be happy to try those. Other images are working on those machines via NFS as well, so if it is a network problem, it's only a network problem on the most recent desktop install CDs. We have a couple additional machine we can use for troubleshooting, and I can work with you on getting access to those if necessary.

CD installs were tested on VMs for that bug, and gave the same results.
