Sorry, it was my fault, and I was able to reproduce it with sarge_d-i. 
As this notebook had WinXP, Win98, an old SuSE and a previous d-i test 
installed, I did not replace the boot loader with grub but kept the old 
one. It was lilo, so I should have run lilo from Suse. Creating a new 
ext3 file system apparently did not destroy the kernel from the old 
d-i test months ago, that was a 2.4.25. After updating lilo, the 
installation finished flawlessly.

Sorry for the noise.
