Ah, thanks.  Let's go with that.

Samuel, are you in favour of skipping installation of these udebs on

I've now tested the attached patch on kfreebsd-amd64, and it does fix
the problem, which I could reproduce before only in these specific

* only in the GTK installer (netboot-9/gtk or cdrom/gtk;  kfreebsd-i386
doesn't have this)
* >=256 MiB RAM (not lowmem mode)
* language other than US English
* a preseed.cfg that uses partman-auto

d-i built with either sid or wheezy udebs made no difference;  it always
ran out of ramdisk space at the same point in partman.
