For me, the sarge-i386-netinst.iso with build date 20040520 (on F1 screen) 
does _not_ have this problem. This image has base-config 2.4.21.

I managed to find the cause of the problem by comparing /etc from the old and 
new installation. The cause was that /etc/console-tools/config.
In my 'old' 20040513 installation this file had:

In my 'new' 20040520 installation this file had:
(both lines commented out!)

After commenting out both lines for my "old" install and rebooting, borders 
etc. are again displayed correctly.

There is still one remaining problem: if I load vga16fb and fbcon, I still get 
a garbled display on vt1-6 after I switch from X11 (vt7).
A reset or a switch from vt1-6 to another vt (not vt7) will fix the display.
I don't know if that's an installer problem though... Any ideas?
