Ehem, I looked at it already now and it seems I had ran out of space
on the partition where I worked on the image...

Other than that, I switched to genisoimage and tested the resulting
modified image successfully by writing it with Disks tool on 14.04 LTS
to USB stick and booting both on a real UEFI + Secure Boot laptop and
testing installation in qemu in Legacy mode. Everything seems
functional and fine.

The only regression is that it seems the Legacy mode now defaults to
English despite "echo fi | sudo tee extract-cd/isolinux/lang". Tips
welcome there... however, the Legacy mode boots to the nice GUI
language selector unlike UEFI mode which requires selecting between
Live and Install modes immediately, so it's not that serious.
