Bug#290108: debian-installer: 2005-01-10 installer broke 'Choose country or region'

Package: debian-installer
Severity: important

I was able to successfully install a Debian system with the snapshot from 2005-01-09, but with 2005-01-10 or 2005-01-11, I get a red window on the "Choose country or region" screen and it says

  An installation step failed.  You can try to run the failing item
  again from the menu, or skip iot and choose something else. The
  failing step is "Choose country or region"

The fourth virtual console has this text:

main-menu[546]: DEBUG: resolver (di-utils-reboot): mark
main-menu[546]: DEBUG: Menu item 'countrychooser' selected
main-menu[546]: DEBUG: configure countrychooser, status: 2
main-menu[546]: DEBUG: configure iso-3166-udeb, status: 2
countrychooser: error: Unable to locate info on country 'US'
main-menu[546]: WARNING: **: Configuring 'countrychooser' failed with error code 1
main-menu[546]: WARNING: **: Menu item 'countrychooser' failed.

This is with linux26 kernel being used and is easily reproduced by just
starting a new install.
