Bug#428913: debian-installer-manual: improve partman-auto/expert_recipe example

Package: debian-installer-manual
Severity: minor
Tags: patch

*** Please type your report below this line ***

I have been looking into preseeding and partitioning, and noticed what
appears to be an omission in the example code.
The example shows a nice expert recipe but does not include the
line that makes the installer make use of it.

A tiny patch for this is attached.
Without this line in the preseed file the installer stops in its tracks
and there was no way (that I could see) to select the expert recipe I had

 # If not, you can put an entire recipe into the preconfiguration file in one
 # (logical) line. This example creates a small /boot partition, suitable
 # swap, and uses the rest of the space for the root partition:
