Bug#386244: tasksel 'Desktop environment' task hangs

Package: tasksel
Version: 2.53
Severity: normal

Selecting 'Desktop environment' (in Etch Testing) causes tasksel to 
hang. (There is a flashing cursor at the bottom left-hand corner of the 
console.) If 'Desktop
environment' is selected from within the Etch beta-3 
Debian-installer, the installation fails. I have replicated the problem 
on a Thinkpad T20 laptop and on the PC detailed below using qemu.
