The problem recently reported by Tim Dierks in
turns out to be identical to the one investigated in
The scripts are executable but ash refuses to execute them.
Ash uses various methods to make that decision, none of which

Perhaps the setup postinstall scripts should change to using bash.
Its behavior is correct and will avoid frustrations.
