Yes. Due to the false setting 'direct: //' in /etc/environment the 
pxeinstaller puts this into the preseeding file.

To fix it, you might execute:

1) /usr/share/debian-edu-config/tools/update-proxy-from-wpad

(this should update /etc/environment)

2) debian-edu-pxeinstall

(this should update the preseed file)
