Package: debain-installer
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

This may be a bug in netcfg or debconf but because I encounter it during
installation I will file it here.

I have tried preseeding the name of my WiFi network (ESSID) by providing
different combinations of values for netcfg/wireles_show_essids and

| case no. | w_s_e   | w_e     |
|        0 | -unset- | -unset- |
|        1 | my_net  | -unset- |
|        2 | -unset- | my_net  |
|        3 | manual  | my_net  |

0. The default case. I am presented with a list and able to choose
my_net on it.

1. I get the list of nets in the air with my_net highlighted. I still
need to press [Enter] to continue (BUG).

2. Looks like 0.

3. Looks like 1, except the "Manual" option is highlighted on the
list. (BUG)

I expected that setting ESSID in preseed.cfg like

    d-i netcfg/wireless_essid string my_net

would prevent presenting me a list of available networks and make the
installer connect to the one I had set.

If I were to guess what is wrong I'd say netcfg_wireless_show_essids()
doesn't handle preseeding correctly like netcfg_get_interface() does.
