Thanks for the thorough testing!
But for whatever reason the /boot/do_purge_kernels file is not created after the installation of a new kernel so that, as a result of this, the purge-kernels script will not be executed on the next reboot.
This is something I don't understand since it has been working in the past and the only change I did to the two systems was to use the purge-kernels script of the new mkinitrd package.
This is created by the kernel %post, but you were using the 11.4 kernel, which did not have this feature yet.
Thanks for the info. Although I am sure now that it will work with newer kernels, I'll wait for the mkinitrd package to appear in factory and for a new kernel and will keep on testing. I'll keep you posted.
