On Friday, I had the opportunity to reinstall Debian (sid)
on another machine. I thus used the daily image of the debian installer
and it failed in exactly the same manner as described in the present
bug report. I was only able to get a working system by installing
"testing" using the debian-installer and then performing an
"apt-get dist-upgrade" to "unstable".
The bug, therefore, is that the debian-installer proposes
to install stable, testing or unstable but does (did) not work
with the unstable version of grub-pc.
