Bug in alien slackware-minimal netinstall current

I downloaded a netinstall (slackware-minimal) image a few days ago.
I did a normal(full) installation. Upon reboot, first boot, I observed
that installation disks were checked for unclean unmount.
Today I tried the same procedure on another computer but did a chroot
afterwards (setting up swap and other stuff). I thought I'd do a manual
unmount this time. Then I saw that /dev, /sys and /proc was mounted twice
on top of each other so I had to do a double unmount for each of them
I suspect this might have been the problem the first time, that the
normal unmount after install did not account for this, and so shut down

You could go here and post your experience. Alien doesn't answer questions or comments on his software on LQ. It is not the appropriate place.

You are correct that I do not handle questions about my own software here on LQ but point people to my blog.

But actually the "netinstall ISO" the OP refers to is simply the Slackware ISO with all the packages left out. There's nothing of me in there, just the script that creates the ISO image is mine.
That is why I did not answer the question. Also since no one else replied and no one else reported this as a problem before, I think that this may be a case of PEBKAC. No offense - I did not perform a test install to validate my claim.

Sorry for my mistake. I thought that this being the official Slackware channel it would
be ok to report a bug with install media.
The problem is not My "PEBKAC" but someone elses, Im just trying to help.
