Last noticed on the Oneiric mx5 image of Oct 9

Pretty sure this is oem-config-remove-gtk suffering a dbus timeout to aptdaemon, however I'm not entirely sure how to fix it. Talking to mvo.

The whole /var/log dir tarball after the installer crashed but no reboot/X restart having taken place.
Previously I got a new ubitquity started as I set autologin on during the install phase.

Nothing in /var/crash

On the preinstalled ARM (OMAP4) package (currently the Oneiric Ocelot release version) for Pandaboard I can reproduce a crash each time I try to change the keyboard settings at the initial setup procedure. If I don't try to change it, I might get it through the setup process (but not every time). If it fails I normally end up with a 'read-only filesystem'.
I currently don't have any logs I could attach. I think at the release notes I read something about race conditions of the kernel but I'm not sure if that's the same problem.

Is that still happening on Precise?
If so, can you please attach up to date log files?
