Nice job of tracing that!

The installer is not really set up to work with kernels that are 
configured totally different from the standard Debian kernels.

If you really have a totally different kernel, you may run into other 
issues as well later on in the installation.

Note that "better configured" is a subjective opinion.
For the installer, it is much better (or at least safer) to start with the 
configuration the Debian kernel uses. How you configure the kernel for 
your installed system is of course completely up to you.

This particular issue is fairly easily avoided, so I have no problem with 
fixing it. Please file your bug report against the package rootskel-gtk.
