Bug Description

The Raring server and precise server and alternate installations of 20130312 images fail to pass the clock-setup step. Selecting the clock setup step comes back to the same selection in the main menu and its not possible to continue the installation from here. The preseeded installations also get stuck at this step. Occurs with both amd64 and i386 images.

Mar 12 07:18:20 debconf: --> INPUT medium clock-setup/ntp

Steps to reproduce:
1. Start the installation of raring server
2. Continue with the default selections( selecting locale (English) , location (UK) and continue with user setup step) and hit 'Continue'
3. Now it could be noticed that 'Configure the clock' step is highlighted in the main menu and selecting that step does not let the installation continue further.

Log file from one such preseeded installation is attached.

I am not seeing this issue with the lubuntu alternate amd64 Iso dated 20130312 which was done after the bug fix was applied. Good work!
