The system itself is very stable, there has been no other
occasion it crashed. Therefore I thought it was important enough to

The problem occured when installing a i386 architecture. The
installation of this amd64 architecture, as well as other installation
attempts of the i386 architecture system never failed on this part. The
problem only occured once.
This seems a serious one: could you please test again with the same ISO
using the textual frontend (boot the cdrom with "install
DEBIAN_FRONTEND=newt") and see if you can reproduce the bug ?
BTW, what ISO image were you using?
