[Grml] Persistence not working

I cannot get persistency to work with grml 2013.02. I'm creating a
live USB stick using grml2usb installed on my Debian Wheezy machine.
Per the wiki, I create a 700 MB fat16 partition for grml and give the
remaining space as an ext3 partition labeled "persistence". On the
persistence partition is persistence.conf setup per the wiki. I
execute grml2usb either with --bootoptions="persistence" or by
choosing persistence from the menu at boot (same result). When
booting, here's what I see on the screen:
mount: mounting /dev/sda on /root/lib/live/mount/persistence/sda
failed: No such device
[...snip...scans sdb sdc]
later I get:
mounting /live/medium on /root/lib/live/mount/medium failed:
Mount point '/root/lib/live/mount/persistence/sdb1' does not
exist. Skipping mount ...
Am I doing something wrong somewhere in this process? If not, is
there a work-around that I can use?
