Note that while it happens perfectly, it occurs too late in the process
(after a 60 second timeout), due to a combination of bugs (443325,
444504). Fixing those will move autoregistration to happen sooner, at
the supposed right time, which might introduce a regression.

What size were those images ?
What do the logs say ?
I suspect bug 439410, in which case the issue should only be transient.

There is a lot of whitespace noise in there, and it's difficult to tell
what's critical and what's not by looking at the linked bugs. I agree
you should confirm with Dan what should be taken from that exactly.

The last ISO is still from yesterday noon. I asked for a respin now and
will test it this morning.
