What causes to start Startup Assistant?
Message ID:

   My MacOSX::File is near completion.  Now MacOSX::File::Copy copies 
files w/ Unicode names without a hitch.  It is even slightly faster than 
MoreFile-based routine thanks to more elaborate copy buffer mechanism.  
And most of all, it successfully restored root volume! -- well, almost.
   I wrote a script called pcpmac, which does what CpMac do but with more 
care like avoiding cross-device traversal (so pcpmac -R /* 
/Volumes/backup will not clobber).  It successfully copied everything on 
root volume.
   Then I switched startup volume to backup disk.  MacOSX boots smoothly 
and... Startup Assistant appears.  You can ssh to the machine with the 
same account and same key, every file is there.  It's just Startup 
Assistant;  Until you create a new account w/ that, it won't get me to 
   The backup volume right after the copied is in the state that was not 
shut down.  Is that the reason why?  but if so, how 
tells if Startup Assistant needs to be run?  Is there anyone who nows 
about it?  Fred?
