Sorry.  I probably should have stated this in the announcement.
This is a known issue.  Please see comment 25 at bug 48130

I've just opened bug 428692 to make sure it doesn't get lost.

In short, you need to get the modules installed and then modprobe loop.

Thanks for testing and providing feedback.

Purely out of curiosity, what tool (if any) do you use to rebundle ?
