Ahh!  Found it!

debconf	debconf/frontend	select	Gnome

I'll move this to my late_command.

If you rearrange it so that it's /boot swap /, it puts / in an extended.

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sda1   *           1          31      248976   83  Linux
/dev/sda2              32         280     2000092+  82  Linux swap
/dev/sda3             281        2213    15526822+   f  W95 Ext'd (LBA)
/dev/sda5             281        2213    15526791   83  Linux

It looks like it wants to throw stuff into extended when you have more
than two.  This isn't really a problem for me though, I'll just have to
make up an answer when people ask me about it. :)
