Strange. You really would need to explain the exact sequence of
actions you ran to get to this.
- start installer in expert mode
- when asked for Installer Components to load select choose-mirror
- you will be asked for repository-information twice
- on a 2nd install I saw that you get repo-info questions (choose-mirror)
even if you don't select choose-mirror to load, so it's a little logic error
it seems that happens when you select choose-mirror which is only a
a little irritating, no real problem.

http://bugs.debian.org as described in
Which is what I'm doing in this mail, BCC'ed to
email@example.com (usual way, mostly meant to avoid users
inadvertently replying to firstname.lastname@example.org)
I've sent a request for setting the sever_ity to wishlist.
