I don't think so, at least it's not ancient.  I did a git checkout only a month ago.  I'll do a fresh download and see if that makes a difference, though.

How recent is your iPXE version?

Could it be ancient enough to simply not support the new scripting features yet? It's always a good idea to try the most recent version anyway.

I've tried examples from the website, which make sense to me, but errors in the DHCP or sanboot steps of my script do not invoke the goto's or other error handling.  iPXE exits entirely back to the BIOS.
