debug log has the same traceback as bug 556436 maybe it's the same issue and should be solved by my recent commit

I am afraid it does not solve it. With the latest images bug 556436 is solved, but this one persists.

With bug bug 556436 now, it does not crash, but it keeps looping without finishing the OEM configuration. I am attaching the new logs.

Still on today's CD. Hard to tell what part is crashing. When running oem-config on its own I couldn't recreate the problem.

This bug was fixed in the package ubiquity - 2.2.18

ubiquity (2.2.18) lucid; urgency=low

  [ Evan Dandrea ]
  * Force garbage collection so we don't end up with stray X resources
    when we kill the X server (LP: #556555).
  * Fix the Portuguese and Latvian translations of the variable name
    RELEASE (LP: #564517).
  * Fix a missing closing bold tag in the Portuguese and Polish
    translations (LP: #564545).
  * Fix labels not expanding vertically to fit their text (LP: #560114,
    LP: #557164, LP: #520898).
  * Do not translate variable names in the Amharic translation
    (LP: #564582).
  * Start the window manager via ck-launch-session so pulseaudio is
    granted access to the sound devices (LP: #549738).
  * Update translations from Launchpad.
  * Automatic update of included source packages: console-setup
    1.34ubuntu14, flash-kernel 2.13ubuntu16, hw-detect 1.73ubuntu3,
    partman-auto 89ubuntu6, partman-base 139ubuntu5, partman-ext3
    58ubuntu3, partman-target 64ubuntu8, user-setup 1.28ubuntu6.

  [ Colin Watson ]
  * Break out of oem-config-firstboot's main loop if oem-config-wrapper
    succeeds (LP: #558593).
  * Quit plymouth before starting either the emergency noninteractive
    ubiquity frontend in automatic mode, or oem-config's debconf frontend.
  * Get a controlling terminal before starting bterm, as otherwise bterm
    won't reliably be able to take console input.
