hmm so the bug report isn't exactly against a kernel-image.
i'm not sure debian is already preventing the unexerienced user from
overheating it's cpu. for now i'll reassign to tasksel so the bug gets
on the radar of the debian-installer team.
maybe we already install acpid for desktop systems, but maybe that
should be paired with some hardware detection of d-i (apm or acpi too old)
cc the debian-installer list for feedback.
