Package: debian-installer
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

I tried to install Etch using last cd from 12.06.2006
Note thah I do not have access to online mirror on that PC and use "expert" mode
Installation silently fails after step "Choose and install software" - it will 
just go to the next step in menu (AFAIR it is "check cd-rom integrity")
After manually trying following steps in installation menu "Abort installation" 
comes at last. After rebooting I have bootable system but is is completely weird- 
for example, users that I have created have gone (no entry's in /etc/passwd), 
/etc/shadow is non-existent so only root with empty password is allowed and so on 

I tried this several times (at first I thought that was because of failing 
installation of console-cyrillic because of not available mirror) and even 
with all default values (excluding disk partiotioning) instalation just silently 
fails at the end, leaving installed system weird

Reason is that a new udeb accidentally migrated to testing. This issue is 
documented on [1] and was corrected shortly after the last weekly builds.
The next weekly builds should be OK again.

Cheers,
