Bug#759290: debian-installer: 'Automated install' does not delay the locale and keyboard questions

Package: debian-installer
Severity: minor
Tags: d-i


when experimenting with unattended installations using PXE-boot and
preseeding d-i, I did not find the 'Automated install' (auto mode)
working as described in [1]:

   The auto kernel parameter is an alias for auto-install/enable and
   setting it to true delays the locale and keyboard questions until
   after there has been a chance to preseed them ...

When I choose 'Automated install' from the 'Advanced options' menu,
the first questions show up nevertheless (before setting up the
network) and I have to answer them or preseed them on the kernel
boot line.  Could it be that the delaying functionality got lost?

Best regards,
