I observed the following behavior for DSL version 1.21 USB frugal install:
1) Add an /optional directory to the root directory of /cdrom
2) Add a bunch of optional extensions including alsadebs.dsl and usbview.dsl from the latest myDSL online repository
3) Boot up DSL and choose alsadebs or usbview from the optional menu.
4) The usbview or alsadebs myDSL menu item refuses to appear.
I have not done a lot of testing, but I believe that the "bug" is related to the "eliminate duplicate menu items" code as part of the mydsl-load process. I think that the script decided that there is already a "usbview" menu item (even though this is not true) and therefore deleted the new menu entry to prevent duplicates.
usbview.dsl is an ideal testing candidate because it is small and doesn't require dependencies like alsadebs.dsl
Hopefully, this behavior can be reproduced and if so, fixed.
