Bug#222631: /etc/mailname is "(none)"

Package: debian-installer
Version: 20031119
Severity: important
Tags: d-i

After installing d-i from a cd images dated 20031119, which found my NIC
and got an IP with dhcp, /etc/mailname contained "(none)". With the new
base-config (2.0), exim4-config will not even prompt for the mailname
(it's priority medium), and this will likely result in broken mails from
systems installed from d-i.

I think that the "(none)" comes from exim4-config running hostname to
get the mail name, during debootstrap, when perhaps the system's
hostname has not been set due to an oversight in d-i. But I've not
really tried to track it down.
