partman hangs with preseed

partman-auto (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Following, I completed a manual install ( in a VM ) and built a preseed file with debconf-get-selections --installer > preseed && debconf-get-selections >> preseed, so that I could repeat the install again for benchmarking purposes. I used raring-server-amd64.iso for this. When trying to install using the preseed, partman appears to hang, but seems to be stuck in an infinite loop spewing output into /var/log/partman forever.

That preseed is way too big and verbose.
You can use much more compact pre-seed for default install.
See examples:

And near-by preseeds.
