I couldn't reproduce it. I've tried opening the shell on VT2 and VT3,
then came back to the main menu to answer until base gets installed,
console-setup configured fine. I've also tried to come back to VT2
before console-setup configures, and didn't get a hang. I've tried both
with the graphical installer and the text installer.

I've done my tests using the rc1 netinst image.

How much memory do you have, btw? I've used 1G.
