Hmm, I've never done a manual boot.catalog, always just ran mkisofs as so:

mkisofs -b boot/cdboot -no-emul-boot -r -J -o foo.iso /some/dir

and let mkisofs create its own boot.catalog.  If you do that instead of
creating one yourself does it work any better?  If not, then you can revert the
revisions that turned off all the debugging output, hook up a serial console on
COM1, and prepare to be spammed with lots of debug output. :)
