Low memory install

base install fails, gives "Not installing on unclean target" error
after being over 50% done.

Screen 3 has:

Setting up base-config (2.53.7)

umount: /target/dev/pts: Invalid arguement
umount: /target/dev/shm: Invalid arguement
umount: /target/proc/bus/usb: No such file or directory

Reading package lists ...


It appears that after base-config postinstall fails, d-i tries to
rerun the step without prompting, which will always fail since the
partitons are no longer clean.

With Microsoft, failure is not an option.  It is a standard feature.
