From the logs you attached:
Jan 4 23:08:06 partman-md: Selected spare count: 1
Jan 4 23:08:06 partman-md: RAID devices count: 4
Jan 4 23:08:06 partman-md: Spare devices count: 1
Jan 4 23:08:06 partman-md: mdadm: You haven't given enough devices (real or
missing) to create this array
It seems it was selected one spare device and weren't available the minimum of
4 devices - maybe from a previous installation?
I have made several installation with latest installer release (Debian Squeeze

If you try with the RC2 release please give us feedback with a installation
