Come to think of it, when I ran the check on Ubuntu and Kubuntu 6.06
It showed something bad on each of them (I don't remember the exact
error) but they both ran as live CDs and installed OK. They were from
Ubuntu and not downloads. The check showed ok for Xubuntu which I
downloaded and burned. No explanation, just fact.
