Bug#282781: debian-installer: Sparc64 RC2 netboot puts console in unicode mode erroneously

Package: debian-installer
Severity: normal

Just tried the Sparc64 RC2 netboot debian-installer on an Ultra 5.

It puts the console in unicode mode, despite the fact that the sparc
console doesn't appear to do unicode. This leads to a messed up
display, with characters out of place (usually, text is displaced a
character to the left, and the right hand edge of list-boxes appears
ragged rather than straight). It's usable, but doesn't exactly look
professional. Playing around with debconf/framebuffer=false or adding
LANG or LOCALE=C to the boot arguments didn't appear to make any
difference unfortunately.
