Bug#574336: pkgsel: Only run update-initramfs once during installation?

Something looks very broken in this example.
Why is initramfs-tools getting set up twice for the same version?
Why is dmsetup getting installed if it is not being used during
partitioning (in which case it should already have been installed _before_
initramfs-tools gets installed the first time)?
After that the only remaining cause for an extra run is usplash.
If debian-edu wants that installed by default, then the correct solution
IMO is to include it on the first CD and ensure it gets installed during
post-base-installer.d and not during pkgsel.
The problem here IMO is a badly structured installation, not a missing
feature in pkgsel.
