Bug#551959: netboot: fails to set user and passwords on installation

Could you please try images from
http://www.debian.org/devel/debian-installer and take care to use the
"daily builds"?

The way D-I images are built is fairly hard to explain in details, but
at this very moment, I would believe only those images, which are
built with the udebs from unstable, are really working as expected.

To other D-I people: we need to sort this out. I haven't tested myself
but I suspect most images are currently failing (see the recent
reports about the graphical installer failing while I successfully
boot images I buid locally). We really need to warn our users about
this in order to avoid many failure install reports such as this
