D'oh!  A holdover from my Solaris packaging days...

Renaming the postinstall script fixed part of the problem:

syslog:Apr 21 12:07:51 prototype: Debconf Preseed Value: prototype/entry Hello

But main-menu is still dropping priority for some reason.  I'm still trying to
figure it out.  I suspect that it may have something to do with a script I
have run from the preseed/late_command...

The strange thing is, I can remove my prototype-udeb package, and remove it's
name from the .disks/udeb_include file on the CD, and main-menu never

Thanks!  I think I'm on the right track.
