Thank for your answer; sorry that I have taken so long following up. I needed 
to find a time slot to do a new full installation, still based on etch beta 2 
installation disk, and without manually installing discover2.

I have now done that, and the problem, whatever it was, has completely 
disappeared.  My best guess is that it was a "udev" problem, and that the 
development of the "udev" package has solved the problem at some time between 
early April and now - eight versions has been issued in the interval.

So my suggestion is that this bug report should be closed.  The bug was real 
at the reporting time, but no more, and it has nothing to do with 
debian-installer anyway.

thanks for your efforts
