I can confirm that some boot parameters are lost in the environment.
Of the above sequence only the first three are listed in `set`.
All are listed in `cat /proc/cmdline`
This is with kernel 2.4.27 in qemu (i386 netinst CD image of 20041015).
Hmm. If I try the same with 2.6.8 kernel I get a real-life kernel panic:
Kernel panic: Too many boot env vars at `check/d=4'
d-i does not even boot!
/me wonders why Joey has never seen this with all his preseeding tests...
