Dear Colleagues,

I'm trying the "bsdinstall script myscript" automated setup feature on
a 10.3-RELEASE system. When myscript looks like this:

DISTRIBUTIONS="kernel.txz base.txz games.txz"

everying goes fine.

But when I change it into:

DISTRIBUTIONS="kernel.txz base.txz games.txz"

everything gets screwed up, bsdinstall spits out lots of debug and
goes interactive.

What am I missing? What should an install script look like for
unattended ZFS install with a default dataset layout?
