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
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.
