Default install fails on kfreebsd-amd64 with the following error:

  The attempt to mount a file system with type swap in SCSI1, partition #5 (da0s5) at none failed.

  You may resume partitioning from the partitioning menu.

  Do you want to resume partitioning?

It should be da0s2, not da0s5.  It seems that partman is counting logical
partitions starting with 5 as on Linux.

A workaround is to disable swap in the default partition layout and enabling
it manually after the install.

As a workaround is available, although it's not exactly ideal, this
isn't a blocker for the release.  Should a d-i RC3 be needed for some
reason before release this could probably be fixed as part of that,
otherwise is likely to be 6.0.1 material (although in that case should
be documented somewhere that can be pointed to as part of the release
announcement).

Adam

This is a known bug, see:

http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=610885

A workaround is to disable use of any partition other than the
first one (primary), or switch to GPT.

Is this problem still there and/or is there any plan to work on this for
wheezy?

I don't really thing this is release critical as there is a workaround.

Thanks for waking this up.

Please don't send such messages without any context.  Referring to a bug
as "this problem" with just "ping" as a subject is just not helpful.
You might also want to send your questions to the bug submitter by
cc:ing them explicitly.

Cheers,
Julien
