Just as an extra factoid, the same happened to me recently, althugh
in a slightly different way.  The installer hung trying to mount the
cdrom (state D according to ps).  At the time, there were 2 cdroms in
the machine.  Removing one resolved the issue, so I never bothered to
report it.  I have no idea if this is somehow related, but it struck me
since we got stuck at the same point.
