Bug#511683: Latest auto-install does not respect DHCP preseeding

Package: auto-install
Version: 1.3
Severity: important

While playing with the DHCP preseeding method for the installer in 'auto'
mode, I discovered that the 20090112-20:05 daily i386 netboot image now asks
for a preseed/url despite it being specified by the DHCP server -
presumeably the check for a preseed/url or preseed/file is done too early
ie. before the value is filled in from the DHCP server response .  In
contrast, the lenny RC1 installer picks up the DHCP specified preseed file
as expected.
