Having just done some Wheezy usb installs, I can confirm this for
wheezy. However I'm not sure what solution it is you're looking for
("do not create /media entry points for usb removables detected during
install"?). If you can explain that, perhaps the formulation of the bug
report follows naturally.
While you're at it, you may want to ask why the installer doesn't allow
putting /media on a separate filesystem.
I solve it looking at /etc/fstab and deleted the entry that point to
usb. Because of that every time i plug that use, it try to mount it like
the install usb pen.

directly to you.
