I could reproduce this bug with the latest _Sarge_ build.  It sound like  
the same bug with #250376.  But I'm not sure, because you mentioned the 
sid_d-i which AFAIK, has already come with the fixed version of 
'languagechooser'.  Anyway, could you please make/check the following 
changes in /etc/console-tools/config for confirmation:

- Comment out the line "SCREEN_FONT_MAP":


- Add the following line

After saving the changes, do a '/etc/init.d/console-screen.sh restart' 
and check the result of "dpkg-reconfigure popularity-contest" command as 
Christian suggested.
