Note, there are actually two bugs here, but it helps to understand the 
second if you read the first.  One bug occurs during installation, the 
other after installation is complete.

1) The installer was unable to successfully start PCMCIA.  I was able to 
start this by hand, but it was a bit of a roundabout procedure. 
Selecting the menu entry to start PCMCIA did nothing, but if I selected 
to load a network driver ("Detect network hardware..."), picked a 
network driver, and let it fail to load, then I could go to a virtual 
terminal (Ctrl-Alt-F2) and do an "/etc/init.d/pcmcia start" and 
everything would work fine (alternatively, going back to "Start PC Card 
Services" works after failing to load a network driver, then you can go 
back and "Detect network hardware").  I could then load my network 
driver and go.  Note that, if I went straight to the virtual terminal 
and tried to start pcmcia it would fail (with "modprobe: Can't locate 
module pcmcia_core"), I had to go through the menu and fail loading the 
network card first (I assume something is loaded in the background in 
that step that then lets PCMCIA initialization work).

2) After installation, when the system rebooted, PCMCIA support had not 
been installed.  I had to manually copy the PCMCIA modules from the 
installation disk and edit the configuration to start PCMCIA.  Also, 
after the apt-get steps run by the first login, which include 
re-installing the same kernel that was installed during installation (I 
assume this is because I downloaded a recent NetInst image), the new 
installation failed to include the pcmcia-modules package and I had to 
add this in by hand.

The d-i pcmcia issues are fixed; grab a current netinst cd and give it
another go.
