Fine by me, but please do at least a full install after applying that patch to make sure there are no unexpected issues.

just performed successfully an installation at low priority, so going to commit this patch (also tested with test debconf scripts, no problems found, cdebconf behaviour was regular).

I could get crashes when on VT1 while partitioner was running in the

Looking at crashes during partman is probably not the most easy way to go about it. Partman as a lot of complex interactions. I'm sure I've seen crashes at other points as well. Possibly hardware detection, netcfg, and base-installer or pkgsel or both. pkgsel is probably a bad choice for debugging as well though.

I used partman because i could reproduce the crash, but i'm aware partman is a bad beast (among all debconf clients in d-i, i remember it giving problems since i first started working on the g-i).
