That's one of the failures.
Has that worked for anyone?

I dunno.

How about:

tasksel tasksel/first multiselect standard, desktop
d-i preseed/early_command string . /usr/share/debconf/confmodule; db_get
debconf/priority; case $RET in low|medium) db_fset tasksel/first seen
false ;; esac

That appears to touch on the problem's cause.
I did not try it as:
   1. it did not match the template given in the documentation.
2. though I suspect I have a glimmer of its purpose, I do not understand the code. I do not run code I don't understand. Also, a significant
      motivation of my actions is understanding Linux.

The problem actually revolves around the installer (both Squeeze and Wheezy) default boot line including "priority=critical" for an automatic install. I have not satisfied myself whether that should be reported as a bug against installer or against documentation. Does problem still exist in Jessie or later? Not having a high speed connection, it would be difficult to verify for myself.

Thank you for assuming I was intelligent, even if not expert ;)
