I think that it is not normal because the install freezes and I should not kill 
the process to continue. It is a method for experts not for normal user that 
install a system.

Ie : to upgrade initramfstools to 0.98 in mode debootstrap, a request to confirm
the modification of conf files is expect by the installer but an interactive answer 
is impossible, so installer waited for an infinite time. The answer should be 
automatic as in graphic mode of the installer.
