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.
