Yeah, generating non-working/crufty things, even if that's only doable through preseeding, looks unnice (especially with such a tiny patch to fix it).

Tests: apt-setup/multiarch=i386 apt-setup/multiarch="i386 armel" Failed with this one, but due to *:powerpc package dependencies: apt-setup/multiarch="i386 powerpc" Uploading in a moment, should be in rc2. Thanks. Mraw, KiBi.
