Interesting.  The live image isn't based on the sid version but on a
backport.  See http://wiki.debian.org/DebianEeePC/HowTo/Upgrade.  So
the Sid version gives different results, or did you just try something
that you never tried on the live image?

Are you running Sid, then, or just Lenny + the Sid kernel?  I would not
suggest anyone use Sid at this time but am recommending Lenny + kernel
backport (as per the upgrade document above).
