Actually, the question was answered by discover (from config script):

mob:/# /sbin/discover --disable=serial,parallel --format="%V %M\t%S\t%D\n" video
ATI Technologies, Inc. Radeon Mobility U1       XFree86 radeon

Well, it seems to me that it is not.

What puzzled me is that the user answered *yes* to autodetection...

In /var/cache/debconf/config.dat:

Anyway, the radeon driver has a different treatment in the config script, doesn't it?

Anything you think could help?
I can reproduce the error any time you like. 
If you think it is worth, for sure.
Maybe is there a log somewhere?
