The .pb file for bootanim customisation won't work any more as we have
changed boot animation:

Even if you avoid this file it looks like it will still fail, since
the customisation stick chooses user ID 500 for the olpc user, but
this is now 1000.

The customisation stick has been somewhat problematic for a while now,
and starting in 2010 we started to move to the direction where image
customisation should be done by making your own image (which is much
easier than before). Is this an option for you?
