That's not dbootstrap, that's base-config. Getting the terminaology
right makes it more likely I'll notice this type of message.

Do you have a /root/dbootstrap_settings file? If so, base-config crashed
before it could finish. If not, something very weird is going on, since
the logic it uses to display those final messages isn't dependant on
what you choose to install.
Hm, do you have procps installed?
BTW, there is no reaoson to innclude rootprofile.pot in the base system.
Base-config doesn't use it. Someone really needs to send me some
translation patches; base-config is wholly untranslated right now..
