Okay let's try to add a "sleep 2" in the profile:

    <stage name="Installing a package.">

	<!--Sleep for 1 second, hopefully things get logged now-->
        <execute command="sleep"><param>1</param></execute>

        <copy base="&build_dir;/&bootscripts-directory;">
	[ cut the rest ]

Now that worked.

Come to think of it, when manually logging installations without ALFS the 
script I use has a "sleep 1" in it after which I start an installation to 
prevent just this (so if I just would've thought for one second for myself 
I'd have figured it out too).

I'd like this to become default behaviour, at least in the version of nALFS I 
run here. Where would I insert a sleep 1 type routine in the nALFS source 
code. Unless you plan to make it default too but I'm not getting my hopes up 
;) I would however appreciate some help as I have no clue really how to go 
about it (I just don't have the resources to play around with the nALFS 
source code).
