Bug#282650: netcfg: incorrectly configures DNS when preseeded with static address



Package: netcfg
Version: 1.07
Severity: important

Using the rc2 businesscard image, remastered to include a copy of my
preseed file (no other changes).  The DNS settings are incorrectly
configured - the nameserver entry seems to always get set to subnet+1, 
even if I specify something different.  Here is the snippet of my preseed 
file:

d-i     netcfg/disable_dhcp     boolean true
d-i     netcfg/get_nameservers  string 192.168.1.5
d-i     netcfg/get_ipaddress    string 192.168.1.169
d-i     netcfg/get_netmask      string 255.255.255.0
d-i     netcfg/get_gateway      string 192.168.1.5
d-i     netcfg/confirm_static   boolean true


After the network is configured, /etc/resolv.conf and
/etc/network/interfaces both show 192.168.0.1 as the nameserver.
Obviously, this causes the rest of the installation to fail since it
can't resolve the mirror hostname.
