FAI initramfs-tools breaks console-setup

have there been changes to initramfs-tools in the FAI wheezy  
repositories lately?

Yesterday I noticed that apt fails on some Ubuntu 14.04 clients with  
this error message:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  initramfs-tools : Breaks: console-setup (< 1.72) but 1.70ubuntu8 is  
to be installed.
The following actions will resolve these dependencies:
      Keep the following packages at their current version:
1)     console-common [Not Installed]
2)     console-setup [Not Installed]
3)     kbd [Not Installed]

Running fai-setup propagates these errors to the nfsroot with the  
result that during client install this error is present as well, so  
console-setup is not installed, which breaks a few things like virtual  
terminals from the 'createvt' flag.

Removing the FAI debian wheezy repository resolves this issue.

Btw, is the FAI repository required for building the NFSroot (running  
fai-setup and/or fai-nfsroot) or can I remove it once fai-server has  
been installed?
