stuck in an infinite loop which I saw when I ctrl-c'd
it. When I tried to just let it run, it just kept
writing a 800mb file of those until processes started
to get killed everywhere and I can barely activate a
console before it gets killed off again. Any way to
tell strace to ignore dupes? I'll try restarting the
install process again and see if I can get a trace
before it grows too large to handle...

You probably won't get anything else than the above output anyway.

It seems that /usr/lib/apt/methods/cdrom is stuck in an infinite loop trying to read from stdin...this doesn't seem to have anything to do with the crypto parts of the installer.

I hope someone on debian-boot who is more knowledgeable about the intricacies of apt will be able to provide more feedback...
