That is correct. The CD does not mount itself if it is inserted again. You 
could however have run the step "Detect and mount CD-ROM" in the main 
menu of the installer again before starting the package selection option.

Yes, I see what you mean. This is something that we need to work on.

The installer will currently display the following dialog in this 
  /cdrom/: Please insert the disc labeled: '....' in the drive '/cdrom/'
  and press enter.

The pkgsel component should at least check if a CD-ROM is mounted until CD 
switching is implemented (and this dialog should probably have a cancel 
option as well).
