I've seen this happening when installing some interdependent *-dkms packages
which may result in such a situation - if they are installed in the wrong order.
(It seems that, while considering all dependencies, FAI sometimes reorders or
splits installs, with a flag that doesn't consider dependencies at that
particular point in time, "I know what I'm doing" - some packages appear
to outsmart FAI's own smartness though.)

Surprisingly, I never got stuck at 50-misc ... it almost looks as if "-y"
was assumed by default?

Cheers, Steffen
