That would indeed be very weird. Are you sure that that is what happens?

It seems more likely to me that maybe the _installer_ treats the device a 
bit differently than a regular system, just because its boot sequence is 
rather different.

If it happens consistently I see no reason why the installer could not set 
up the inittab correctly. We already do so for other cases and to me this 
does seem to be in line with that.

The script Ian pointed you to is the correct one to look at. However, I'm 
not sure at this point which of the three existing categories (regular 
serial console; "onboard service processor"; Xen) this use case best 
matches. We'll need more detailed info for that (remote access to the 
system could maybe help at some point).
