Looks like the font reduction system did not work properly. If it
fails with Swedish also, this is not related to countrychooser
bug. 273857 reports similar problems.
Could you create a installer/needed-characters/fi file with all
characters required by Finnish ? While you're at it, and provided you
can do it, do the same for Swedish.
Petter, the same for nn and nb would be great.
It's probably not the direct cause of the problem as all charaters
from udebs which are in initrd's are always kept even if the
needed-characters file is not there...but it probably won't hurt.
