[Server-devel] Spaces in the 'family'?

Playing with F11 anaconda, there seems to be a regression in the
handling of the 'family' string.

In my iso, I have:

 $ head -n2 .treeinfo
 family = OLPC School Server

 $ cat .discinfo
 "OLPC School Server 0.7"

When anaconda starts, it talks about "OLPC" ('Welcome to OLPC fo
i386') instead of "OLPC School Server". More worryingly, when invoking
the text-mode installer there are broken characters "<94><F1><B7>"
across the top of the screen.

Any hints as to how to diagnose this further?
