Bug#608641: debian-installer: Debian installer lose its mind when doing again the process after an error in novice mode

Package: debian-installer
Severity: important

When error occurs during install(for example, packages installation, boot loader implementation, etc.), we go to the main menu, so we can start again from a previous step.
The problem is that theses steps aren't replayed in the same way than the first time.
Some new questions are asked(does it switch to expert mode?), and some others aren't. For example, when re-doing packages installation, the packages category selection menu doesn't display itself. Other example: exactly same behaviour for bootloader configuration questions.

Sometimes it happens after just one error. Sometimes, the replaying works well after one error, but if a second one appears and that we replay again installation, the bug occurs.
