Mmm, I can't test any more because I've overwritten the image, but I'm
not able to reproduce it with the current image, could you re-check, and
post the whole d-i syslog file?

Ah, indeed, that needs to get fixed.

And you thus get a lot of issues

One issue is that the account setup is done after bootloader setup, that
step thus got skipped...
That being said, the sudo way would have failed, as RM had to remove
sudo to fix an issue with squeeze. Thanks to Svante Signell for having
provided a patch.

I don't even remember whether we support ctrl-alt-delete in Mach. reboot
needs to be run by root, sure.

There's a couple of known benign issues, notably "deleted inode has zero
dtime", which is related with mapped files.

Again, that would have been done after grub setup :/
