I was not able to reproduce this, but I think I've worked out what has
The clue is in the /var/log/debian-installer/cdebconf/questions.dat.
As you can see, these entries have NO VALUES!
The fact that mirror/suite is unset, could well explain apt-config's
choose-mirror defaulting to sarge.
And I know that debian-installer/kernel/commandline must have been set
correctly during 1st stage as my zipl.conf was set up correctly.
Value: Continue installation remotely using SSH
This looks like the last menu item to be activated was "Continue
installation remotely using SSH"!
This leads me to the conclusion that _not_ the cdebconf values from the
SSH session, but the values from the original console version got 'saved'
to /target and used during base-config.
Conclusion is that it is very dangerous to leave two debian-installer
processes running at the same time!
