Just about the first thing that the update on attach does is
create the log file, so if there isn't one, then I'm not really
sure what they did or how the zone could have ended up in the
installed state.  Clearly something went wrong here so its hard
to draw any conclusions about the state of the pkg metadata
at this point.  If this is reproducible, then we can dig into
it further.  It sounds like the pkg metadata is still corrupted
in the NGZ due to the bad pkg?  Cleaning that up might help
things, but it would be nice to see whats really going on during
the whole process.
