We're not using partimage-ng.  So, I haven't worked with it since I initially 
wrote the code to handle it.  partimage can definitely handle a mix of windows 
and linux images.  We use it quite heavily.  Also, I see there is a newer 
version of partimage-ng than the one I compiled into the rootimg.gz image, and 
it can even handle LVM partitions.  So, it may be worth giving that a shot.  I 
was hoping to see if I could replicate your problem soon but didn't have time 
to.  I'm out all next week.  So, it'd be the first week of July before I'll 
have any time to do any testing with it.
