Sorry for replying this late; most probably this problem is fixed for some time
already in the experimental versions (most recent is 3.2.21+experimental12).
Please see http://faiwiki.debian.net/index.php/Main_Page#getting_FAI for details
about the experimental builds and how to obtain these. It would be grate if you
could give that one a try.
