correct (and ftr, there was no way in guessing what you're doing since
you didn't give any information about your config, so --debian-installer
was the more likely cause, as it defaults to true).

i beg to differ, they don't 'default' to binary, rather the rule is: if
a config file in the config tree has a .chroot or .binary suffix, it's
only effective for that stage, if it has neither, it's effective for
both. and that's on purpose.
