For the don't select anything else case, that is the failure.
It isn't supposed to install, and attempt to configure, postfix but it does.
(but I see your detailed notes as to why, in the bug report you added).

Now, trying again selecting some stuff at the "Select and Install Software"
step, was failing (many days in a row and many scenarios) and now it is not. (?)
That was on a VM today, but a real physical machine before. I'll try a real physical
machine later today.
I don't see anything in the d-i changelog that would explain it.

I never do that method.

I re-opened that bug, because I thought is to be the exact same issue returned.
