Bug#617386: debian-installer-launcher: doesn't configure the package manager, which leads to a broken system afterwards

Package: debian-installer-launcher
Version: 5
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

Using the debian-live-6.0.0-amd64-lxde-desktop.iso, I tried to install using
the debian-installer-launcher which is placed on the desktop. However, the
installation option "configure the package manager" doesn't work. When
restarting afterwards, I am brought to a grub rescue prompt.
I guess it's not a debian-installer bug, because when using the graphical
install method at boot of the live-dvd, instead of using debian-installer-
launcher, the system is not broken, because configure the package manager does
work in this case (this means grub is normally started and the newly installed
system afterwards also).
