I'm not sure, if this is the same: 
#382357 reports about behaviour when double clicking with the 
mouse, while I reported about behaviour with the enter key of
the keyboard (imagine that the graphical installer is the default
installer someday and someone has no mouse or it is damaged or
the batteries are empty or ...)
I can get through the install (boot: installgui) without mouse or
touchpad through the language, state and keymap questions and so on,
only with up/down and enter key. So there the enter key activates
the Continue button. But whithin partman, the enter key has no
function anymore on the menu items (see my original posting).
