We expect 735 to have problems with the release 0.9 ISO, because of
problems with glibc 2.2.1.  I havn't seen this particular problem
reported before though.  Not something silly like out of disk space
or disk errors, is it?  Can you create files/links in /target from
the shell, once this error happens?
