software update after olpc-update

Updated an XO-1 and an XO-1.75 from os7 to os9 and would appear that the first reboot software update still has some issues.
When the process is initiated as prompted at the 1st boot post-update, the progress bar stops after the first or second activity, and looks like froze though the process continues in the background.
When after some time you click the OK button the control panel exits to a bank screen that has the home screen toolbar but no home screen icons.
This behavior appears specific to the olpc-update process, as invoking software update at a later point behaves normally. The only problem software update has is that you can *not* omit any updates (there is no good reason for example to be forced to have both wikipediaEN and wikipediaES at 100MB each). Though I guess this is a Sugar issue.
