Re: [PATCH] Fixing package-initialize, adding early init file

This feature ("Add early init file, stop package-initialize insertion",
commit 24acb31c04) seems to cause the following behaviour for me:

1. cd
2. mv .emacs.d .emacs.d.bak
   (My user-init-file lives under user-emacs-directory, so this is like
    erasing user-init-file and uninstalling all packages.)
3. emacs --no-site-file
4. M-x package-install RET bbdb RET
   (I think any package with a "dir" file will do - lmc.el does not
    cause any issues, for example.)
5. C-x C-c
6. emacs --no-site-file
7. C-h e

The first line in the *Messages* buffer reads

  Symbol’s value as variable is void: Info-default-directory-list

followed by "[N times]" where N (I guess) is proportional to the number
of packages installed in package-user-dir.

Repeating step 6 with --debug-init doesn't change anything, and neither
does Stefan's latest "Use condition-case-unless-debug" commit

Any ideas on what is happening and how to debug/fix this?
