Bug#599200: base-installer: Install amd64 kernel on i686 kvm guest - and fail to boot


I installed today the same way as Petter Reinholdtsen does, but on 
virtualbox-ose version 3.2.8-dfsg-2.

uname -a on the host system gives:

Linux laptop-jl 2.6.32-5-amd64 #1 SMP Fri Sep 17 21:50:19 UTC 2010 
x86_64 GNU/Linux

When I install and choose <Install>, then a system is installed that has 
an amd64 kernel, but 32-bit userland. It should install a 32-bit kernel 
here, not a 64-bit one.

But when I choose <64 bit install>, I get a 64-bit kernel _and_ a 64-bit 

Best regards, Jürgen Leibner
