As per IRC, I retried with your new packages. One thing I noticed is
that the IP configurator tells you that IP acquisition failed while my
interface was already configured before running the setup. A minor bug

With your packages, I get this http://sprunge.us/MjLg

Hopefully that's useful. However, you should also be able to reproduce
