IIRC the debconf database is saved to disk each time after main-menu
runs a menu item. So one way this could happen is if you went back to
the console and did something to make network-console "finish" just before
the install finished. Such as hitting enter (er, "..") at the note that
it displays after starting ssh.

But hmm, in prebaseconfig just before it saves the logs it also makes
sure to save the debconf db. So it'd seem you'd have to have done that
at the console in the window between 93save-install-log saving the db
and copying it to /target. Granted, this could be a fairly long window
in hercules. ;-) I may be missing some other way this could happen.
