So I think the steps to reproduce are:
* Unpack the image to a hard disk (or file which is going to be your
test VM's virtual device).
* Set up a local web server containing a preseed file like the one in
my original report, edited for IP addresses etc.
* Set up your PXE server appropriately. Mine looks like this:
serial 0 115200
menu label ^Overwrite
append vga=normal auto=true preseed initrd=debian-installer/i386/initrd.gz hostname=insider url=woking.cam.xci-test.com/~osstest/osstest/insider_preseed domain=cam.xci-test.com acpi=off noapic netcfg/dhcp_timeout=150 netcfg/choose_interface=auto DEBCONF_DEBUG=5 DEBIAN_FRONTEND=text -- console=ttyS0,115200n8
* Boot the machine. It should boot, start d-i, bring up the network,
load the preseed file, detect the hard disks, and then
automatically partition the hard disk. If the bug triggers, the
system will hang when partman_sever segfaults.
You can ignore the "latecmd" in the preseed I was using; the
installation falls over before then.
