i wasn't able to get that version of debian-cd to produce a working CD because
of another bug:
i could work around it by manually editing the boot lines at boot, but i was
still unable to reproduce the problem.

clear out the simple-cdd/tmp directory and try again with a different mirror?
can you check if busybox is included in the cd image itself:
lesspipe foo.iso | grep busybox
