As long as the compilation process stays as it is right now.  Right
now we take a working (fallback or failover) image and use it as the
"bootblock".  When that changes there will be no guarantees.  Right
now you should use fallback+failover or fallback-only images.  Normal
is guaranteed to fail.

Most likely.  I thought I fixed remove, but I probably missed a corner case.
