Bug#878553: netcfg: "download debconf preconfiguration file"

Package: netcfg
Version: 1.145

I have been running pxeboot with preseed successfully for a while.
Recently, with a new version of netboot from (as of today 2017/10/13/):


I am now getting a pop up box with "Download debconf preconfiguration file"
during the automated install process, which turns it into a non-automated
install process

This is what a pxelinux.cfg file looks like:

p# cat /srv/tftp/pxelinux.cfg/01-00-50-56-ae-8d-15
 D-I config version 2.0
default debian-installer/amd64/boot-screens/vesamenu.c32
  SAY Booting new build ....
LABEL auto
        menu label ^Auto

# stretch / testing
        kernel debian-installer/amd64/linux TERM=linux keymap=us
locale=en_US.UTF-8 country=BM language=en_US:en auto
url=tftp:// domain=qvs.bm
hostname=undefined interface=ens160 netcfg/get_ipaddress=
netcfg/get_netmask= netcfg/get_gateway=

# common append for all
        append initrd=debian-installer/amd64/initrd.gz
prompt 0
timeout 3

In the log, there are lines like (I am retyping them as they are in a
non-copyable window):

Date/time netcfg[25054]: INFO  Found interface ens160 with link-layer
address 00:50:56:ae:8d:15
Date/time netcfg[25054]: INFO: Taking down interface ens160

It is at this point, the interactive box pops up.

What settings do I need to change to make that go away?
