That should work fine.  If curl ends up on a line by itself, end the
previous line with a "\", just like the line that ends with
"initramfs-tools" does.

What do you get from the SD card itself?  Try following these
instructions [0] from linuxquestions.org to enable boot logging and then
post that file:

    go to /etc/default/ and look for (or create) a file named
    "bootlogd".  Inside that file add/ change a line so it reads
    "BOOTLOGD_ENABLE=Yes".  The next time you reboot you will have your
    boot messages saved in the file "/var/log/boot".

In summary, on the SD card's /etc/default/bootlogd:

vmdebootstrap should handle all of that.  I'm building and booting
images from Wheezy, so I'd be surprised if that were the issue.

I'll give it a go this weekend and let you know.
