I can still reproduce the problem during an installation though...

I have a few very wild ideas, but no idea how valid they are.

One idea is the encoding (installer is running with nl_NL.UTF8, although 
the pkgsel postinst sets and exports LANG=C).
Another is busybox.
A third is the way debconf-copydb is called within d-i; maybe broken 
handling if the target is target_configdb?

The full call is:
  debconf-copydb -p \
     "^(debian-installer/language|debian-installer/country|
debian-installer/keymap|passwd/username)$" \
     configdb target_configdb
