Good to hear that everything builds fine.
I believe your problems were caused by the prereqs defined in  
These prereqs were causing to reload Seaside from parcels creating a  

As far as I can see, there are only two ordering constraints.
- SeasideForWebToolkit must obviously be loaded before any other  
Seaside add-ons
- SeasideAsync must be loaded before SeasideImageTools
So your load order is fine and is just one of many possibilities.

SeasideSettings can be loaded anytime, either before or after  
everything. When it is
loaded before SeasideForWebToolkit, it becomes possible to configure  
beforehand (either via its UI or programmatically). Then, when  
gets loaded, it will figure out that settings are available and will  
use them, making it
possible to build an image with Seaside in an unattended mode. This  
was an idea
from David Pennell for building images in an automated way.
