Mac with restored image from v1.0rc132 (stable) does not boot

Hello everyone
I have just installed the new v1.0rc132 (stable) and I am having some issue I can reproduce
My setup:
10.6.8 server running v1.0rc132 (stable)
10.7.4 DS updated netboot image created with a 10.7.4 machine (boots fine) and served from the above 1.6.8 server

I have created a new image from the v1.0rc132 netboot set.
The OS being image is a 10.6.8 client
Image created and copied in the repository

I wanted to test the image over the same machine it was created so I put it within an existing workflow, changing the previous image being restored (and created from the same client)
The process seems to work fine but as soon as the client reboots it remains with the "spinning wheel" at startup (not the rainbow beach ball).
I tried rebooting is single user mode and run Applejack that keeps showing error messages refering to dyld(s)

Rolled back to DS 131 on the same server, created a new netboot set and restored the same workflow/image over the same client (workflows did not change as I have not uninstalled DS prior to downgrading)
The client boots fine

So it seems there's something wrong with the restore process in v1.0rc132 (stable) in my case, as the same workflow/image can be successfully run from RC131

Additional info: if I run a different workflow with another image created with an older DS version (can't remember but was a year ago or so) everything works fine with v1.0rc132 (stable), so I can't absolutely say it is a problem with the restore process in  v1.0rc132, as an image created with the same DS version does not boot (it does with RC131) and a previous image works in  v1.0rc132.

If the last image created with v1.0rc132 was broken, it should have not worked fine it RC131, isn't it?

What might be the problem?
Many thanks for your support!

Image & restore tasks have not been changed for a while.

Hello and thank you for your reply
I ended up discovering that a pkg being installed "live" during the workflow created the issue
As soon as I put the pkg as posponed at first boot, everything was fine
The weird thing is the very same workflow (image + pkg) used to work perfectly until RC131
Other existing workflows with the same pkg installed "live" are still OK
Thank you again

Same issue here, live package install during NetBoot causes this to appear in verbose mode on reboot:

"coreservicesd triggered DYLD shared region unnest for map [hex address]"

Repeats over and over with a different memory address each time, but never progresses further in the boot sequence.
