/me hits self with large salami

It turns out the new base-installer was not included in the initrd so I 
was in fact not testing Colin's patch (as Sven pointed out correctly).
/me being tired at the time and the similarity of mkinitrd and mkinitramfs 
contributed to making me miss this fact.

I've tested again with the correct base-installer and then it behaves as 
it should. Sorry for the noise.
