Bug#386532: d-i: keyboard layout and language are not being installed in low memory mode

So, you actually never choose *German* language which is logical as
the instalmler in low memory mode never allowed you to do so.

As a consequence, I find it pretty logicial that you end up with an
English-speaking system.

This is mostly because there is abolutely not locale environment,
again, so the console is not switched in UTF-8 mode (which happens
only with UTF-8 locales, afaik). I'm not sure this really can be
called a bug
