It seems that 0.1.4 fixed my problem. It worked exactly as expected, and was quite fast. Didnt even noticed the progress bar (but I saw it stop again on 8% for a sec)

That's it. Why does it do it?

Well didnt find any bugs per si against usb-creator but I found to odd behaviours:
 * ubiquity or casper takes a lot of time to boot from pen (much longer then the CD/DVD), so maybe we could have a progress bar show up earlier or TTY messages (while not on quite). Dont even know if I should report it or against what.
* I decided to test Suspend while booting from Pen. Guess what ? my system (kernel??) stop responding. Not even alt+SysReq+REISUB worked. Hard  power down was my only option. But I guess LiveCDs/DVDs/USB system aint ready to be used with ACPI support...


Continuing with my offtopic, cant we get boottoram option back? it would be great to unplug the pendrive (imagine the case of netbooks, where all usb ports count).
I cant even imagine how Clonezilla project does it on their Testing Branch (they are rebasing on Ubuntu Intrepid). I guess I need to email them and ask.
