Bug#591278: debian-installer: confusing questions on GRUB installation

Package: debian-installer
Severity: minor

I installed squeeze using the netinst iso within VirtualBox. Late in the 
installation process there's some confusion about setting up GRUB. d-i 
asks me whether I want to proceed without installing GRUB. If I choose 
"No", the question plainly pop up again. If I choose "yes", d-i scans 
for other operating systems and, after that, asks me whether GRUB should 
be installed to MBR. From this point on, everything is fine.

This behaviour is rather confusing, I don't understand why it asks me 
whether to proceed without GRUB installation in the first place.

Best regards
