preseed/late_command is set to:
wget $(debconf-get preseed/url).combined -O /target/tmp/combined;
chroot /target sh -x /tmp/combined > /target/var/log/combined.log 2>&1

(I've also tried omitting the redirection but that didn't help)

The script just does:
  if [ "$rc" -ne 0 ]; then
    echo "PANIC - something has gone wrong (rc=$rc)"
    sleep 3600
  exit $rc
trap upon_exit EXIT 
apt-get -y install ssh

Someday I'll do this more sensibly (custom debootstrap scripts perhaps).

.deb packages upgraded from sarge to etch:
 - linux-image-2.6.15-1
 - debconf, debconf-i18n - 1.50
 - module-init-tools, libklibc, lsb-base, klibc-utils, initramfs-tools, udev
   (backports from Kenshi Muto)
 - busybox-cvs installed (wasn't used before, but needed by

.udeb files upgraded:
 - sata-modules, md-modules, reiserfs-modules
