I don't know how DEBIAN_HAS_FRONTEND=1 would help things.

Anyway, could you see if using


fixes the problem for you? Either by installing it into the chroot
by hand before APT does, or by adding

  deb http://debian.madduck.net/repo sid main

as APT repository during the install? If this does not fix it, then
we can debug the existing issue further. I am almost sure it will

Thanks a lot, again, for your help!
