It always makes the release seem closer when there's a beta of d-i to
play with.

Thanks for getting this working.

I tried in a standard VM (Debian package from sid) with a complete
default netinst i386 install. The installer worked flawlessly but
GNOME3 had a problem:

"GNOME3 Failed to Load
Unfortunately GNOME3 failed to start properly and started in the
fallback mode.

This most likely means your system (graphics hardware or driver) is not
capable of delivering the full GNOME 3 experience."

That's going to make testing Wheezy CD images annoying. Anyone else see
this problem? I tried logging in under GNOME and GNOME Classic - the
warning didn't show again but the UI didn't show any visible change, it
appears that only fallback/classic is available. Can someone using
GNOME3 in Wheezy verify that this is expected behaviour?

So the beta of d-i looks good - more testing to follow.
