The combination of an ancient distro (CentOS/RHEL 4) and a bzip2
compressed kernel makes me feel reasonably certain that this is yet an
instance of "the bloody shell scripts don't actually generate the proper
length field."

It's a known problem and we're working on it. In the meantime, select
gzip for the kernel compression.
