All seemed to go quite well.

However, post install I noticed many, many GTK+X libraries.  I chose
'standard system utilities' and 'ssh' only during debconf.

After a bit of examination, I noticed this in my apt/history.log:

Commandline: apt-get -o APT::Status-Fd=4 -o APT::Keep-Fds::=5 -o
APT::Keep-Fds::=6 -q -y -o APT::Install-Recommends=true -o
APT::Get::AutomaticRemove=true -o APT::Acquire::Retries=3 install
task-english task-ssh-server python2.7 reportbug wamerican
liblockfile-bin hdparm groff-base debian-faq apt-listchanges perl ucf
doc-debian traceroute wget man-db bash-completion mime-support
gettext-base python perl-modules-5.26 dbus bzip2 netcat-traditional file
python-minimal bind9-host python3-reportbug lsof libpam-systemd xz-utils
manpages ncurses-term krb5-locales reportbug-gtk telnet openssh-client

Not sure why, but 'reportbug-gtk' was installed.  This pulled loads of
GTK / X11 packages in.

(Is this too soon in the process to report debian installer bugs?)
