I'm afraid it is not fixed in the SVN version either.

The reason may be that the debian-installer script gets run as follows 
from /etc/inittab:
::respawn:/bin/cttyhack /sbin/debian-installer

In older versions of busybox 'pidof debian-installer' _did_ return its pid 
when started in basically the same way (also under respawn in inittab), 
but we did not (need to) use cttyhack then.

Removing cttyhack does _not_ fix the issue. I tried that (by editing
/etc/inittab before init is executed) but also with just
the pid for the debian-installer script is not displayed.
