I can confirm this.  Looks like a cdebconf/gtk issue, there are two
'screenshot' and two 'go back' buttons on that screen, and syslog has:

debconf: cdebconf_gtk (process:318): WARNING: cdebconf_gtk_choice_model_create_full failed.
debconf: cdebconf_gtk (process:318): WARNING: tag "keyboard-configuration/layout" failed to display!

which I guess are related.  Any cdebconf gurus could shed some light on

Alberto, any chance you could go back through the daily images and see
where this started happening?  I'm fairly sure it was working a few
months ago.
