Comment 14 for bug 707749

Today I tried to use usb-creator on the following disk images:
kubuntu-13.04-desktop-amd64.iso
debian-live-7.0.0-amd64-kde-desktop.iso

usb-creator worked fine with the Kubuntu image but failed to work with the Debian image.
I used the same USB flash drive twice.
The error message with the Debian image was:
Invalid version string 'GNU/Linux'

This is the OS version displayed by usb-creator for kubuntu-13.04-desktop-amd64.iso:
Kubuntu 13.04 "Raring Ringtail" - Release amd64 (20130424)

And this is the OS version displayed by usb-creator for debian-live-7.0.0-amd64-kde-desktop.iso:
Debian GNU/Linux 7.0.0 "Wheezy" - Official Snapshot amd64 LIVE/INSTALL Binary 20130505-13:41

I have the feeling that usb-creator chokes on slashes in the version string.
