I'm sorry for not having reported this earlier, but I did give it a test last week, with a daily cd iso and a 8GiBs pendrive, and it got stuck at 8%.
It stood there for more then 30 mins with the pen light blinking.
Only a file was created on the pen, but i cant remember its name (syslinux or something like that)
I tried it several times and even tried to make it verbose, but got nothing.

I also saw files being created on /tmp/, and I was afraid I would run out of space on that partition (only had 1GiB free). I dont know what that temp file is used, but if I tried the DVD iso and the temp file grew that much I would have ended without free disk. Please let me know if it does.

I'll try to test it today again with the most up to date version and a daily CD iso.

ps. My emails tend to sound authority and aggressive. I'm sorry in advance. I'll try to be more assertive as time goes by...
