Yes, I have.  The unzipping takes a minute or two, and during that time
the shell will freeze up.  It seems to all be okay once the install has
passed, though.

I don't understand why the freezing is so severe.  If I install the
bundle via "unzip" on tty1, the laptop stays multitasking and happy
while the unzipping happens.  In Sugar, I can't even switch to tty1
while it's being installed.
