We're having a problem with too long strings in cdebconf, so the list is
somewhat limited. As soon as this is fixed, a whole slew of locales will
get to that list.

Damn. It might be the raid code, it's untested. Do you have anything in
your /proc/mdstats? Does /usr/lib/partconf/find-partitions segfault too?

Older versions didn't probe for the raid modules and stuff, so it might
be that...

The exit code 35584? It's not something I've invented. :)
