hw-detect/start_pcmcia=false on debian-installer cmdline causes segfault and loop

I started to file the following after trying unsuccessfully to get reportbug
(6.6.3) to install on openSUSE. I had no luck finding instructions on filing
a bug against the installer or its version. Neither did searching for an
existing bug get me anywhere. Any suggestions on whether or how to proceed
with this? I don't often install Debian, maybe a half dozen times in the past
decade, and can't recall ever having occasion to file a bug against it.

Subject: ipv6.disable on debian-installer cmdline causes segfault

Package: debian-installer
Version: x86/32 bit

Using this ( /proc/cmdline ) to load Jessie installation kernel and initrd
with Grub Legacy causes the installer to segfault and loop back to IP address
vga=791 --- net.ifnames=0 ipv6.disable=1 netcfg/disable_dhcp=true
netcfg/get_hostname=myhost hw-detect/start_pcmcia=false tasks=standard
base-installer/install-recommends=false nosplash splash=0

Using this ( /proc/cmdline ) instead allows Jessie installer to proceed past
network setup:
vga=791 --- net.ifnames=0 ipv6.disable=1 netcfg/get_hostname=myhost
tasks=standard base-installer/install-recommends=false nosplash splash=0

words are persuasive." Proverbs 16:21 (New Living Translation)
