Bug#412168: debian-installer: Rescue mode: terminal 'bterm' doesn't play nice with some apps in rescue shell

Package: debian-installer
Severity: normal

(From memory, please forgive minor errors in naming etc.)

After booting into rescue mode and starting a shell in my root 
partition from the menu, the grub shell and some other 
tools messed up my screen, probably because the terminal type 'bterm' 
wasn't fully supported.
'man' (using 'more' as pager, I think) complained about some terminal 
functions probably not working correctly, while the grub shell overwrote 
much of its own output, making it mostly unusable.
I tried changing terminal emulation to 
TERM={ansi,linux,vt52,vt100,vt102,vt200} with mixed but unsatisfactory 
results. Does this have something to do with the console 
(framebuffer) driver used during installation?
On a normal boot, my system has VCs without framebuffer, TERM=linux.
