I was installing pv-grub-menu using preseeding of
apt-setup/local0/repository to configure backports and pkgsel/include of
pv-grub-menu/wheezy-backports to install[0]. Switching to using a late
command to setup backports and install pv-grub-menu seems to work just
fine with the version currently in bpo, I suppose because a device.map
has been created by the grub by that point.

But even so, is there any reason not to upload 1.3 to backports?


[0] which was leading to unrelated strange behaviour by causing iproute,
ifupdown and isc-dhcp-client from wheezy to be uninstalled in favour of
iproute2 from wheezy-backports. Very odd!
