Bug#327393: running netcfg out of order in menu does not configure dependencies first

Package: main-menu, debconf
Severity: normal
Tags: d-i

I started d-i in expert mode (netboot) and went down immediatly and
selected netcfg from the menu. Netcfg complained that there was no
network interface -- ethdetect had not run. ethdetect provides
ethernet-card-detection, which netcfg depends on, so it should be run.

It seems that what main-menu tries to do with
debian-installer/missing-provide triggers an internal error in cdebconf:

Sep  9 19:56:53 debconf: --> SUBST debian-installer/missing-provide CHOICES Detect network hardware,
Sep  9 19:56:53 debconf: Adding [CHOICES] -> [Detect network hardware,]         
Sep  9 19:56:53 debconf: <-- 0                                                  
Sep  9 19:56:53 debconf: --> INPUT medium debian-installer/missing-provide      
Sep  9 19:56:53 debconf: <-- 0 question will be asked                           
Sep  9 19:56:53 debconf: --> GO                                                 
Sep  9 19:56:53 debconf: <-- 100 internal error                                 

Why is there a comma after the sole choice? Probably this used to work
and cdebconf has become stricter in what it will accept.
