Actually, it wasn't.  I was running F10 as my OS and I had downloaded
the F10 KDE4 beta live ISO to download on my usb stick.  

The exact command I used was:
# livecd-iso-to-disk --reset-mbr --noverify --overlay-size-mb 100
--home-size-mb 20
--unencrypted-home /home/xxx/Download/f10-kde-4.1.80-1/f10-kde-4.1.80-i686-200812091339.iso /dev/sdc1

I think there is a bug in this tool as I had trouble getting a bootable
image with certain parameter combinations that looked like they should
have worked.   But the above command line has worked reliably. 

I have not been able to get the liveUSB-creator tool to work. 

Hope this helps someone.
