[opensuse-autoinstall] How to debug a failed Autoyast install of a Factory-Xen DomU?

I use Autoyast to install Xen DomUs.

Installing an OpenSuse 11.1 DomU, with autoyast= invoked in the DomU's
.cfg, works just fine.

Installing an OpenSuse Factory DomU, the install launches, and
proceeds to some random , late-stage package install (@ ~ 80-90%
complete, in each of 4 attempts), then just hangs -- taking the Dom0
with it. All connections are dropped, and a system reboot is

I'm trying to debug the process.

Launching the DomU with,

extra = 'linuxrc.debug=1 linuxrc.log=/dev/console linemode=1
textmode=1 xencons=tty vnc=0 edd=off
netdevice=eth0 hostip= gateway=

isn't providing any log trace of what the problem might be. At least
not that I've been able to see/find @ the xen console, or in any logs
@ the Dom0.

What/where additional logging can I turn on to track down the failure
in the autoyast DomU process?
