Bug#301343: debian-installer: serial console will only install in english

Package: debian-installer
Severity: normal
Tags: l10n

I installed the current jigdo-snapshot an a PWS 500au, and if I
set the console to serial (boot option 1, IIRC), everything works
fine up to the dialog to select the language. It has lots of ÄÄÄÄ
instead of horizontal lines (I can live with that), and has german
selected (so it correctly read the information from SRM, nice). But
if I actually select German as the language, he screen is cleaned
twice and the installation hangs. If I either select English from
the serial console, or German from the graphics console, everything
