While it's true that you can do it that way, you should also be able to
delay the pre-network questions with auto=true, and then preseed them in
the network file.

Here's a video of that working, using a d-i mini.iso, and typing (rather
a lot of weirdness, but none of it to set the keyboard) at the boot


Cheers, Phil.
