Your guess is correct, base-config has this code in /usr/lib/menu/finish.d
<snip>
if [-f /etc/inittab.real ]; then
    mv -f /etc/inittab.real /etc/inittab
    telinit -q >/dev/null
    # Clear the screen, in preparation for the login prompt
    clear
fi
</snip>

The obvious question is: is the inittab.real valid?
Another file to check would be /etc/securetty

Cheers,
