Unfortunatly I had to re-install my system. Thanks for your help beaucause I
did not notice that logs were saved under /var/log/installer. I was used to
see it in /var/log/debian-installer.

It was a server at work so I made the installation as quick as possible.

Maybe you can close this bug. I can neither reproduce it, nor track anything.
