Bug#295111: tasksel: Manual package selection does not allow manual package selection (revisited)

Package: tasksel
Version: 2.22
Severity: important
Tags: d-i

Sorry for reporting this so late. I started testing this several times,
but ran into a snag each time. Today, finally I got around to it.
Follow-up for (archived) bug #272360.

If tasksel is run from base-config and I select no tasks, tasksel will
still run with the --visual-preview parameter.

If I run tasksel from the commandline, it works as expected:
- if I select an extra task, aptitude is run with --visual-preview;
- if I don't select an extra task, aptitude is run without --visual-preview;
