I’m guessing this is because setup.exe doesn’t know what to do with a redirected /var and /usr/local on the first install, when /etc/fstab doesn’t exist yet?
I assume setup.exe does obey /etc/fstab on subsequent installs. If not, I can see that this will break the installation of any package that puts files in either location.
I don’t see that the */tmp changes would bother setup.exe.
None of these problems seem difficult. Doesn’t setup.exe write the initial /etc/fstab, and so is in a position to know what it will contain on first install?
