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

No idea.  This what made me suspect the cause might be the LTSP

It is a dependency of lvm2.  I asked 'aptitude why dmsetup' on the
machine in question. :)

There is not enouch room on the CD for that. :)

Oh, well.  My goal for this request was a faster installation.  I
assume we share that goal, and do not see the point of arguing further
for making sure update-initramfs is called as few times as possible.

Happy hacking,
