Bug#298952: network-console: does not seem to allow preseeding of password

Package: network-console
Severity: normal

I was trying to preseed the password values for network-console so I
could fire off my automated installation and then keep an eye on it
remotely.  I added the following to the preseed file on my cdrom:

d-i anna/choose_modules string network-console
d-i debian-installer/network-console/password string r00tme
d-i debian-installer/network-console/password-again string r00tme
d-i debian-installer/network-console/start note

Running the install with these lines generates a "password empty" error
message and I am unable to proceed -- the only option is to continue,
but that just brings me back to the same error message, probably due to
the "critical" priority.  Is this the right syntax for preseeding this
question or am I making some other obvious mistake?
