Bug#439512: debian-installer: doubled serial console lines in /etc/securetty

Package: debian-installer
Severity: minor


After serial console netboot Etch installation /etc/securetty ends
like this:

# serial console added by debian-installer

However, those entries are already present in the file, at the very top.
It doesn't seem to cause a problem in itself, but can become dangerous
if the administrator removes only one (pair) of the entries and thinks
s/he disabled root login over the serial console.

I think it's better to remove this append from the installer.
