Hmmm. And it's also important to distinguish between debian-installer.d and 
debian-installer-startup.d correctly.

debian-installer-startup.d: executed once when D-I boots
debian-installer.d: executed after d-i-startup.d and respawned if the 
debconf frontend should crash

So IIUC having it here means we run the risk of starting multiple servers.

It seems to me that this should maybe go in debian-installer-startup.d, but 
that may require more changes in order to determine the frontend to be 
used early enough.

Another solution could be to check if the server is already running and 
only start it if not. That could provide a restart of the X server if 
*that* crashes.
