I have a hypothesis (I can't prove it yet as I'm not very familiar with d-i):

I had another error message that I ignored at first:
``[!!] Configure the package manager
apt configuration problem
An attempt to configure apt to install additional packages from the CD failed

That's why d-i could not install grub-pc. Actual grub-pc_1.99-8
package was found at the DVD and I had no network during installation,
so it could not be fetched from the internet.

I'll try to check the reason of apt-cdrom failure this evening as I
can't deduce it from syslog. I would appreciate if someone familiar
with d-i looks at the syslog file, maybe the reason of apt-cdrom
failure is obvious.
umount failure after apt-setup-udeb looks quite innocent and I see no
other errors.
