Bug#601440: installer components menu not available with default debconf priority

Package: debian-installer
Version: 20101025
Severity: normal

When asked to enter the root password, I chose 'Go back' to be able
to load the network-console. The menu item 'Download installer
components' is present, but selecting it eventually just causes d-i
to ask me for the root password — confusing unless you know what's
going on.

I suggest that the menu item be hidden if the debconf priority is
'high' and only shown if it's set to 'medium'. Or maybe the
installer components could be temporarily lowered from high to
medium if selected explicitly?
