The quoted line is preceded by the helpful comment:

   # umount can legitimatly fail if something is keeping
   # it open

So we will keep /hd-media mounted with

   d-i preseed/early_command string \
       mkdir /xxx;\
       mount --bind /hd-media /xxx

Which makes me wonder whether there is a bug of any consequence here.
