The following patch, which clears the cache after debootstrap and
then again at the end (after kernel/extra packages), works for me.
 OK to apply?

Conceptually it is OK but why not move it to post-base-installer.d?

Well, my idea was to clean it twice, once after debootstrap and once
at the end (after kernel and extra packages).  Doing it in
post-base-installer.d would not clean the kernel and extra packages.

IMO it should only be done once during base-installer: at the very end (and
only if successful). Doing it twice does not gain anything.

If you are *very* short of disk space, doing it twice might make sense.
