I'm not sure what image was used by the bug reporter, but I assume a
current "D-I alpha 1" image. The alpha1 images date from mid February.
Until today, the version of pkgsel in testing was 0.26, which does not have
my latest changes. This also means that current "squeeze_d-i" images still
have the old version.
As you can see from  my final work on Recommends handling in D-I was
done _after_ the alpha1 release.
I verified earlier today that with a daily built D-I image exim4 does not
get pulled in when popcon is installed during pkgsel.
