I suspect the changes in main-menu since Etch to be the cause of this.
Possibly because they keep state internally and do not allow for switching
to network-console for part of the installation.

Suggest you try a custom installer with Etch's main-menu to see if that
fixes it. If it does, a serious BR against main-menu would be in order.
