I saw something on a web page about "consistent" behavior. This would be
nice.

I think this problem though, is more involved. Since I don't even
pretend to understand Python, I wont swear to this, but I was able to
make this work in Core 1 by commenting out the skipStep line. I compared
the code in the Core1 release with the Core3 release and they are
functionally the same. So it seems to me that the problem lies somewhere
outside of kickstart.py.

Has anyone else hacked into this in the Core 3 release??
